Forums > Living in Kunming > Question about local Kunming dialect

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I was wondering if anyone with knowledge of the local dialect can help me out here for a phonology project that I am working on. The question that I have is mainly on how the tones work.

How exactly do the tones in 昆明话 work? How are the tones different from say, standard mandarin? And are tones affected by the type of sentences that they are spoken in? For instance, if asking a question or saying a commanding statement would affect the way tones work.

I would be grateful to anyone that could give me any kind of answer, anything simple would be fine. I don't expect anyone here to write a paper for me, but if I can figure out how the tones work, I can probably make more sense out of some of the recorded data that I have.

From what I've gathered online ([...] there are two theaters showing it at midnight and the one closer to me is near Beichen, 北辰财富中心影院. I'm probably going to go eat dinner in that area pretty soon and I'll be checking out the available seating for the movie while I'm there.

if you want to join, email me at and i'll shoot you my number.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Avengers midnight release show

Hi everyone. I'm interested in watching this movie but I don't really have anyone to watch it with. I'd definitely go watch it by myself if I had to, but I want to see if there's an interest from others here that also want to watch the midnight release. Any other comic book fans or marvel movie fans interested in watching the midnight release?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Board Games, anyone?

Resurrecting a fairly old thread, but I'm interested in finding a group of board game players perhaps during weekday evenings. I would also like to see what games are available at the Game Cafe...

Forums > Living in Kunming > Any place to watch NBA games?

I'm looking for a place in town where I can watch some basketball games, preferably Knicks games, but I can enjoy watching any game for that matter.

Is there any place that has a friendly crowd that gathers to watch basketball?

College March Madness would also be fun to watch too...

Nice and clean atmosphere, went on the half price pizza friday..

The only thing I didn't like about the pizza was that the sauce tasted too sour, but everything else about it (cheese, toppings, crust) was pretty good. Great considering the price.

wait was a little long, but understandable due to being crowded and seemingly short-staffed.

I would come again on a different day and try something else.


Chicago Coffee is probably the closest I've seen to a western-style coffee shop here in this city. It's roomy, comfortable, and seems to offer many tables for seating. The atmosphere is bright and relaxing, they use a nice choice of interior colors, and whoever selects the music that they play has great taste in music.

I tried the Hawaiian pizza and the Coffee Frappe. I had high expectations for the frappe after reading some of the reviews saying that this was truly a thick milkshake. Though it's not as thick as the In 'N' Out milkshake that I'm used to in my native California, the milkshake was fantastic. Yes, it was thick. I could taste the ice cream goodness that was just put into a blender seconds ago. My expectations were met. It was good stuff.

As for the pizza, it was not exactly the Chicago style pizza that I was thinking it would be. Regardless, I enjoyed it. I finished the entire thing and helped my friend finish some of his pizza. This place is a little bit pricey compared to other western places, but the quality is definitely there.
