Title:Sociolinguistic Survey of Lawa in Thailand
Abstract:Western and Eastern Lawa are closely related Waic languages spoken in two provinces of northern Thailand: Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son. An orthography based on the Western Lawa variety spoken in Ban La-up has been developed and is used widely, especially by Christians, since there is a Western Lawa translation of the entire Bible. There is no Eastern Lawa orthography, and it was not clear before this survey whether or not the Eastern Lawa were shifting to Thai. A team of researchers surveyed the Lawa in February and March, 2006, using sociolinguistic questionnaires and intelligibility testing in order to assess the need for further vernacular literature development among the Lawa.
