About the Hmong Language
The Hmong language belongs to the Hmong-Mien language family, together with other West Hmongic and Hmongic languages. Most native speakers reside in Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou and Guangxi regions of China, as well as northern parts of Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos. In addition, there are approximately 260,000 Hmong speakers in North America.
There are various dialects of the Hmong language, including a few so-called “dialect clusters”. These dialects are often referred to with colors and other evocative names, including “White Miao”, “Blue/Green Miao” and “Flowery Miao.” These dialects are mutually intelligible to speakers with well-trained ears though they feature differences in both pronunciation and vocabulary. By using a reliable translation professional, it is possible to obtain translation, transcription or interpretation from any of the dialects.
