Abstract:

A partially random sampling survey of the Gan Yi people in the Yi Mei Duo village of the Stone Forest County was conducted. A pilot-tested questionnaire was used as the survey instrument. Although the Gan Yi can understand a basic level of Sani Yi, they might find it more difficult to understand more complex Sani Yi materials. Language shift to Chinese is evident in this Gan Yi village.
