Title:
Landon Chronicles (1928-1942): Kenneth and Margaret on His Remarkable Language Skills (hour 64, clip 18)
Date:
1928-1942
Description:
Kenneth left the OCI for the BEW in part because the Harvard folks couldn't get along with him about the Chinese he spoke. Margaret points out that Kenneth spoke the Swatow dialect, Taichu, that was commonly spoken among the diaspora of Chinese in Southeast Asia. Kenneth had this dialect down so perfectly that the Chinese would marvel at him. They hadn't known any foreigners had lived in Po Leng, where his brand of the dialect came from. The Landons explain Kenneth's first hand experience learning Chinese and Thai languages by literally living with the native speakers. (Length 7:39)
