Title:Sociolinguistic Survey of So in Northeastern Thailand
Abstract:The purpose of this survey was to determine the need for further language development among the So in Northeastern Thailand. The instruments include word lists and sociolinguistic questionnaires. The sociolinguistic questionnaires were analysed by comparing responses to determine dialect perceptions, language vitality, and bilingual proficiency among So speakers. The word lists were analysed using lexical comparison to determine potential groupings within So speech varieties. Key findings are that Isan seems to be generally well understood among the So. The So language appears to be high in vitality. There is broad comprehension of the Photi Phaisan dialect of So, but it does not appear to be as well understood in some So villages.
