Al, you are correct about Siyi. However, Jo may also be asking about the Sap dialect spoken in the greater parts of Hengfeng. It is a similar dialect to Siyi, but developed their own distinct nasal tones, due to frequent dust storms in that area. Another distinct difference is the pronunciation of onomatopoeia such as "yatszhu" for sneeze, and "zuhzuh" for buzz.
