Southwestern Tai Dialects
Glossaries, Texts, and Translations
Edited by Thomas John Hudak
A thorough examination of Southwestern Tai Dialects, including an extensive glossary as well as texts and translations
In 1964 and 1965, William J. Gedney first began his intensive and meticulous study of the Tai language family, concentrating primarily upon the Southwestern Branch of the family. Working in Thailand, Laos, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, he recorded word lists, folktales, stories, and songs. From this early work come the data in this volume, including White Tai, Red Tai, Black Tai, Tai Nuea, Hsi Paw Shan, Chinese Shan, Khuen, and Yong. As with the others in this series, this volume will be of interest to linguists, folklorists, and anthropologists.
