Changzhou is a Wu-speaking city but never used as an alternate name of Wu. Wúyuèyǔ should be split up into "Wúyuè Yǔ." There are even more commonly used alternate names of Wu than Goetian (which is mostly used in only Japanese context) such as Jiāngdōng Huà (江東話). Additionally, the above are only pinyin transcriptions, and Wu's own autonyms include Wu Nyu (most common), Wu Gniu and Ghou Nyu.
