Khroskyabs or Lavrung (native name: bósʁæi "Tibetan language",[3] Chinese: 绰斯甲语; pinyin: Chuòsījiǎ yǔ) is a Rgyalrongic language of China.[3] It is called Guanyinqiao in Ethnologue after a town in western Sichuan where one dialect of the language is spoken, Thugsrje Chenbo (Wylie: thugs rje chen bo). It has been referred to as Lavrung in previous publications.


Dialects of Khroskyabs include Wobzi (spoken in Jinchuan County), Thugsrje Chenbo, ‘Brongrdzong and Njorogs (Yèlóng 业隆).[3]
