Choca-ngaca or Chocangacakha (Dzongkha: ཁྱོད་ཅ་ང་ཅ་ཁ་; Wylie: Khyod-ca-nga-ca-kha; also called "Kursmadkha," "Maphekha," "Rtsamangpa'ikha," and "Tsagkaglingpa'ikha") or Tsamang is a Southern Tibetan language spoken by about 20,000 people in the Kurichu Valley of Lhuntse and Mongar Districts in eastern Bhutan. Chocangacakha is a "sister language" to Dzongkha, however under pressure to assimilate into the mainstream Dzongkha speaking Ngalop culture, this proximity has resulted in significant loss of its particularly distinctive "Kurichu linguistic substrait."
