Muong (thiểng Mường)

Muong is a member of the Vietic branch of the Austroasiatic language family. It is spoken mainly in the provinces of Hòa Bình, Thanh Hóa, Vĩnh Phúc, Yên Bái, Sơn La, and Ninh Bình in northern Vietnam. In 1999 there were 1.1 million speakers of Muong.

There are a number of Muong dialects which are quite distinct from each other, although they are all considered a single language as they are spoken by Muong people. Muong is closely related to Vietnamese, and some Vietnamese speakers report that they can understand it.

Muong is used on the radio, and there are Muong translations of parts of the Bible. However, few Muong speakers are able to read and write their language.
