About the Karen Language

Karen is a Sino-Tibetan language spoken in Southeast Burma and Thailand. It is a tonal language with a syntax (subject-verb-object) that is unique to the region. The language is written using the Burmese script, used also for the Burmese language and liturgical Sanskrit. While heavily influenced by the Mon and Tai languages, Karen is one of the only regional languages to have no Chinese influence.

Karen Dialects

The Karen family of languages can be broken up into several dialects, which have been classified by two scholars: Ken Manson and Tadahiko Shintani. Manson classifies the languages by region: Peripheral, Northern, Central and Southern. Shintani classifies the languages by family: Pao, Kayah-Paduang, Bwe, and Sgaw-Pwo. Each of these dialects have varying degrees of mutual intelligibility. The Multilingual Connections team is trained to handle source materials of any origin, allowing you to submit documents and recordings from any region.
