Abstract:

This paper compares two minority languages from northern Vietnam about which very little is known. The aim here is preliminary documentation of some of the very basic features. The Kháng data are based on my own field study and those from Ksingmul and Bumang are taken from sources which are in Russian and Chinese respectively. I have included a relatively rich lexical sample of Kháng and compared items to Ksingmul, Bumang, and other relevant languages. The paper closes with a plot of the tone trajectories of Kháng.
