Laghuu Language

Laghuu (Vietnamese: Xá Phó, Phù Lá Lão) is a Loloish language spoken in northwestern Vietnam in a single village in Lao Cai Province. In Nậm Sài, Sa Pa District, the speakers' autonym is la˨˩ɣɯ˦, while in Sơn La Province it is la˨˩ɔ˦ (Edmondson 1999). The people are also called the Phù Lá Lão by the Vietnamese.

Edmondson considers Laghuu to be related to but not part of the Yi language complex of China. Jamin Pelkey (2011) considers Laghuu to be a Southeastern Loloish language.

Famous quotes containing the word language:

    Repeat thy song, till the familiar lines
    Are footpaths for the thought of Italy!
    Thy flame is blown abroad from all the heights,
    Through all the nations, and a sound is heard,
    As of a mighty wind, and men devout,
    Strangers of Rome, and the new proselytes,
    In their own language hear thy wondrous word,
    And many are amazed and many doubt.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
