This article seems to be getting the Mok language [iso code: mqt] and the Muak Sa-aak dialect of Tai Loi [iso code: tlq] mixed up. In reality Muak Sa-aak are in Myanmar/China and Mok are in Thailand. The population figure for Mok [mqt] should be set to zero, as G. Diffloth found no fluent speakers when visiting the Mok area in Lampang in recent years. Muak Sa-aak might also need to be split off from the Tai Loi entry creating three iso codes. There is another group of Mok speakers in Mae Sai Thailand that needs further evaluation, possibly a fourth language variety.Bluethailand (talk) 02:27, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
