Abstract:

Editor's Note: Due to an error in the previous announcement of this text, this
is a repeat announcement of this title.

Buyang is a Tai-Kadai (Kra-Dai) language, spoken by approximately 2,000 people
in Yunnan and northwestern Guangxi, forming two dialect groups. In this sketch
the Paha dialect (of the western group) is described. This volume is a much
revised and reworked translation of materials by Li Jinfang, originally
published in Chinese in the late 1990s, which fills a sorely felt gap in the
descriptive sources available in English. Its publication now is especially
welcome as Buyang shows various morphological parallels with Austronesian, which
as have been noted in recent discussions about the linguistic prehistory of SE
Asia. Paha also possesses a number of lexical items and structural features that
are shared by surrounding Miao-Yao, Mon-Khmer and Tibeto-Burman languages. The
work includes a selection of texts and a substantial lexicon, in addition to the
grammatical sketch and detailed geographical and social information.
