Maru, also known as Lhao Vo and Langsu (Chinese: 浪速), is a Burmish language of Burma with a few thousand speakers in China.

Distribution[edit]

Dai Qingxia (2005:3) reports 5,600 Langsu speakers in China. Many thousands more are dispersed across the eastern edge of Kachin State, Burma.

Langsong[edit]

The Langsong 浪宋 are found in Zaoyang 早阳 in Yunlong County, as well as in Baocun 表村, Laomo 老末, and Sancha 三岔.[3] They reportedly speak a highly endangered language that may be possibly related to Langsu.
