Usage By Country
Tianjin dialect is used in China.

Tianjin is near from Beijing, the Chinese dialects in these two cities are much different. As for the reason, one hypothesis declares that the ancestors of most local people in Tianjin are from Anhui, where is also the ancestral home of the emperors in Ming Dynasty. As a result, the accent of the dialect in Tianjin is more similar with that in Anhui Province, especially Suzhou.
