Abstract
Hancheng, located in the eastern part of Shanxi province, is an ancient city that has lasted for thousands of years and is one of the cradles of Chinese civilization. Hancheng, known as the "pearl of the Yellow River", has the geographical location of the "east gate" hub in shaanxi, which determines that its economic development has distinct regional advantages, but also highlights its strategic position. Hancheng dialect belongs to Fenhe area of Haizhou small area of central plains mandarin, which has certain commonality with central plains mandarin, but more is that it has unique personality. Different from the official dialect of central plains, the initials of Hancheng dialect have the full voiced fricative [v], and the zhuang group reads [ʦ], [ʦʰ], [s], instead of [tʂ], [tʂʰ], [ʂ]; Finals change regularly, but there are many special cases. For example, [ᴇ] only matches the initials of [tʂ] group and forms a complementary state with [iᴇ] group ; Although there is light tone, the tone value of 1 is low and short. It is based on this that it is necessary to carry out the fieldwork of hancheng dialect. In the process of investigation and arrangement, it not only records its primary phonological corpus, systematically and objectively describes and analyzes its phonology and characteristics, but also reveals its phonological coordination rules. There is no doubt that it is meaningful to understand the basic features of Hancheng dialect and to study its folk culture.
