[?]?

In standard Japanese phonology "shi" is pronounced [?i], not [?i]. Are [?i] and [] in the Phonology section mistakes, or is that another distinguishing feature of the Tokyo dialect that was not spelled out in the section? Some citations would be nice.VonPeterhof (talk) 11:34, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

I guess I'll just go ahead and make the change. If anyone can find citations to the contrary, feel free to revert.VonPeterhof (talk) 10:48, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Does the name Shinichi became Hinichi in Shitamachi?--89.97.177.24 (talk) 22:36, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Contradiction

This whole concept of a "Tokyo Dialect" seems far-fetched. Certainly people in their 60's and older who grew up in the shitamachi section of Tokyo have a unique dialect. (In particular, "hi" becomes "shi", e.g. Shitachi-byoin, o-shiru.) But other than that small minority, I strongly suspect that Tokyo Japanese is standard Japanese. For example, even within this article, the following two sentences seem highly contradictory: (1) "The dialect in modern Tokyo is often considered to equate standard Japanese, though in fact the Tokyo dialect differs from standard Japanese in a number of areas." (2) "Traditional Tokyo dialects are now barely used as most families living in Tokyo speak standard Japanese or standardization Tokyo dialect. The difference between Shitamachi and Yamanote becomes almost extinct." I cannot find in this article (or anywhere in popflock.com resource for that matter) any explanation of how the supposed Yamanote dialect currently differs from standard Japanese. --Westwind273 (talk) 12:44, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
