Title:An investigation of intelligibility between So varieties in Northeast Thailand: the Bru in Khok Saat
Abstract:The purpose of this survey is to measure intelligibility among So speech varieties in Northeast Thailand using Recorded Text Testing (RTT). Currently, a language development project exists for the So language in Thailand based on the variety spoken in the Kusuman District (Sakon Nakhon Province). In a sociolinguistic survey (Choo 2008) conducted among selected So communities in and around the Kusuman District in 2008, most So respondents claimed they had no problems understanding the Kusuman So variety. This survey seeks to quantify the subjective self-reported responses from 2008 using an intelligibility testing method called RTT. In so doing, we hope the results will be an indicator of the potential extensibility of the current language development project. In other words, the survey team would like to know if materials currently developed in the So Kusuman variety could also be used – with adaptation if necessary – by other speech communities that claim to be closely related to the So variety in Kusuman. This report documents the findings of an RTT administered among Bru speakers in the Khok Saat village.
