Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   Hello, Linguists!

My query has two parts:

1) Are the consonants represented in the Hmong (Romanized) orthography
by HM and HN voiceless nasals? I thought those were really rare. I
would appreciate any phonetic information anyone might have.

2) More generally, I am interested in finding linguistic descriptions of
Hmong, and information on any sociolinguistic work that might have been
done on this language.

Please reply to me directly (burt@vaxa.cis.uwosh.edu) and I will be
glad to post a summary to the list.

Many thanks,

Susan
