million people in Laos|
and 9 million in northeastern Thailand.
The Lao, who constitute
about half the population of Laos, are most numerous in the
central and southern provinces. Historically, culturally, and
linguistically, the Lao are related to the Yuan of northern
Thailand, who are sometimes referred to as Western Lao. A Tai
language, Lao is spoken with little dialectal variation, although
in Thailand it is written in Thai, rather than Lao, script.
script, which has 46 characters, half of which are used for tonal
markings, is thought to have been derived from the Mon writing
of a millennium ago and influenced by the
Shan-Burmese script."--1000 Tongues, 1972
