The majority of the Hakka people (客家 )(‘Hakka’ literally meaning ‘guest families’)  are said to live in Guangdong province (China) today, but they can be found in many parts of the world as a result of migration.  The Hakka language, history and traditions are different from those of the Cantonese.

Hakka Studies is a journal article written in Mandarin which introduces recent development and research output of studies on the Hakka people in Singapore. There are only two Chinese language publications on the Hakka language in recent years (see inside):

嚴修鴻,2007,〈新加坡的客家話〉。頁239-302,收錄於黃賢強編《新加坡客家》。桂林:廣西師範大學出版社。

鍾榮富,2011,〈大陸原鄉、新加坡與臺灣的大埔客家話之比較〉。頁637-652,收錄於黃賢強編《族群、歷史與文化:跨域研究東南亞與東亞(上下冊)》。新加坡:新加坡國立大學中文系、八方文化創作室。
