Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kam-Sui languages are a branch of the Tai-Kadai languages spoken by the Kam-Sui peoples. They are spoken mainly in eastern Guizhou, western Hunan, and northern Guangxi in southern China. Small pockets of Kam-Sui speakers are also found in northern Vietnam and Laos. Kam-Sui includes a dozen languages. The Lakkja and Biao languages are sometimes separated out as a sister branch to Kam-Sui within a "Be-Kam-Tai" branch of Kradai, but this is not well supported. Otherwise the languages are not subclassified. The better known Kam-Sui languages are Dong, with over a million speakers, Mulam, Maonan, and Sui. Other Kam-Sui languages include Ai-Cham, Mak, and T'en, and Chadong, which is the most recently discovered Kam-Sui language. Ethnologue also lists Kang, which is spoken in Laos and Yunnan in China, as a Kam-Sui language.show more
