Dialects is like an old friend. A friend who grew up with us. And we have lost touch with this friend for quite a number of years now. It’s time to get in touch again with this friend; a friend who not only reminds us of who we are but also where we come from.

The Idea

Many of us grew up learning and speaking dialects – at home, at the playground, and especially in kopi tiams. However, with time, we are progressively losing touch with the dialects that once played a big part in our childhood.

Dedicated to reconnecting individuals with dialects, this site is a reminder that dialects are very much a part of Singapore’s heritage, and our roots.
