The largest ethnic group in Taiwan, for which Hokkien is considered a native language, is known as Hoklo or Holo (Ho-lo). The correspondence between language and ethnicity is generally true though not absolute, as some Hoklo speak Hokkien poorly while some non-Hoklo speak Hokkien fluently.
Taiwanese Hokkien is generally similar to Amoy. Minor differences only occur in terms of vocabulary. Like Amoy, Taiwanese Hokkien is based on a mixture of Zhangzhou and Quanzhou speech. Due to the mass popularity of Hokkien entertainment media from Taiwan, Taiwanese Hokkien has grown to become the more influential Hokkien dialect of Min Nan, especially after 1980s. Along with Amoy, the Taiwanese prestige dialect (based on the Tai-lam variant) is regarded as 'standard Hokkien'.
