The identity of Taiwan being affirmed has been considered as a phenomenon that is highly recognised, while the polls of opinion can provide variations in results that all contribute in highlighting the similar trend. This trend had been that most of the citizens within the ROC currently considered themselves as the population of Taiwan (Rubinstein, 2009). According to a similar source as same as the DPP, by the end of the year 2004, almost two- thirds of the population of Taiwan had shown favourable perceptions with respect to the initial choice.
The change in an undeniable manner contributes in covering metamorphosis within the cultural identity and politics to a certain extent. Being favoured through rehabilitating the culture of Taiwan that was seen as dominating the island between years 1949 to the year 1987, this particular transformation had contributed in increasing the power related to the community of minnan and of the related dialect. The promotion of this had been done by the years of 1990s that ended up being ranked as the second language officially held by the island. It had also resulted in increasing the higher consideration of the diversity related to groups of human living in Taiwan and with respect to the language being spoken by them and the key dialects of Austronesia (Arrigo, 2010). Thus, there had been constitution of the discourse that is both, nativist as well as Universalist. This has gradually been becoming the discourse that is dominant with respect to the class of politics in order to call for recognizing both, status of Taiwan as a state within the international law and of a cultural and historical specificity that contributes in differentiating it with respect to the PRC.
