Cantonese is the language of trading Chinese. I believe that it has 6 tones compared to the standard 4 of Mandarin. I once had a discussion about bilingualism in the Chinese population (Cantonese and Mandarin) with a Chinese linguist (who I had thought was a native English speaker), her conclusion was that Cantonese speaking Chinese were the ones most likely to pick up Mandarin, whereas few Mandarin speakers managed to become fluent in Cantonese. Do I think that Cantonese is funny ? No, I don't.
