Lhao Vo, also known as Maru 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.
The Langsu people call themselves
lɔ̃˧˩ vɔ˧˩ (Chinese: Lang'e 浪峨) (Dai 2003:3; Dai 2010:10) [3 ]
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. They reportedly speak a highly endangered language that may be possibly related to Langsu. [4 ]
