Talk:Yang Zhuang language
Dejing dialect area
The language status of Yang Zhuang is still under debate. In fact, it might be simply one of several distinct languages within the Debao-Jingxi-Napo area. See https://email@example.com/20110629DRAFT-English-Dejing_survey_report-ESR.pdf .
Dejing is probably not Yang Zhuang. "Dejing" is short for Debao-Jingxi, and Yang is what some, but not all, speakers in the Debao-Jingxi region call themselves. Jackson (2011) describes a lot of divergent dialects in the Dejing dialect area (southwestern Guangxi) such as Zong, Min, Langhua, and many others. It's very likely that they can't all be stuffed under "Yang Zhuang." — Stevey7788 (talk) 07:47, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
