Where in southeast Asia is this language found? Is it related to the language of the Hmong, or am I misled by a chance resemblance between the names? Michael Hardy 22:04, 19 May 2004 (UTC)

Mon have no close relative, exept maybe for Nyah Kur. But they both split from old Mon, and may be consider dialects rather than seperate languages, mainly because they are consider the same ethnic like the chinese despite internal diffrences. ~stranger

Hmong is a totally different term, no relation. The Mon language is a language of the Mon people, who now live occupy southern Burma and I think there are some populations in Thailand. They have no country, but did have ancient kingdoms in Thailand, I think it was the Dvaravati kingdom and a few others. --Dara 22:28, July 9, 2005 (UTC)
