Abstract
Yunnan Yongren is located in the northern part of Chuxiong Yi Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province. It guards the key point of Yunnan and Sichuan, and is the key to the north gate of the province.It has an important strategic position. Yunnan dialect, as a part of the southwestern Mandarin, has the general characteristics of the southwestern Mandarin, but there are many phonetic phenomena with unique regional characteristics in its phonology system, and its formation is different from the surrounding southwest Mandarin. The Yongren dialect belongs to the dian-zhong dialect of the southwestern official dialect, which has the common characteristics of the dian-zhong dialect, as well as the individual characteristics of the region and the minority nationalities. However, as far as the current situation is concerned, the study of Yongren dialect is still in its infancy, with few achievements. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct an in-depth study of Yongren dialect, which can not only provide reference for the study of linguistics and folklore, but also help the local people learn Mandarin. Taking the spoken language of Yongren dialect as the object, this paper objectively and systematically describes its its square sound phenomenon on the basis of field investigation, summarizes the phonological characteristics of dialect system, and reveals the law of the coordination of phonological rhyme and tone.
