Beijing Dialect

Although the pronunciation of Mandarin is based on Beijing Dialect, there are various differences these two. The most famous one is that Beijing Dialect often adds 儿(er) to certain words.

For example if you have a friend and he/she feels like your bro/sis, you call him/her 哥们儿 (gē menr)/姐们儿(jiěmenr).
