Abstract
Songs have their specific circulation area in the process of their development. Due to the geographical background, local language dialects, and varying social background, the style and characteristics of songs in various places are revealing specific characteristics. The lyrics of these songs are based on the people´s spoken dialects. Therefore, various dialects´ voices, the ways of making them sound, local accents, terms used and exclamations, have been brought into these songs, thereby forming regional differences of songs to some extent.

This study is based on intense field work undertaken in the past few years. It deals with ways of singing in Napo County and Funing County in the South of China.
