Usage notes[edit]

This term was primarily used to describe non-Hoklo people from Mainland China, a large number of whom had emigrated to Taiwan after 1949. It was later replaced by 外省人 (gōa-séng-lâng).

Third generation Filipino-Chinese and younger usually refer to Mainland Chinese as 大陸仔大陆仔 (tāi-li̍ok-a).
