Lao Language Facts

Lao also called Laotian, is the official language of Laos, and also spoken in the northeast of Thailand, where it is usually referred to as the Isan language. Being the primary language of the Lao people, Lao is also an important second language for the multitude of ethnic groups in Laos and in Isan. Lao, like all languages in Laos, is written in an abugida script. Although there is no official standard, the Vientiane dialect has become the de facto standard.

Lao is spoken by several million inhabitants of Laos, in Indochina, and of northern and eastern Thailand. It closely resembles Thai but shows certain phonetic differences. The standard eastern Lao script is closely related to Thai writing, but the several northern Lao alphabets more closely resemble the writing of the Shan people of Myanmar and southern China, and appear to represent a different graphic tradition. However, all these scripts can be traced to Indo-Aryan (Indic) origins.

Spoken in: Laos, Thailand, U.S., France, Canada, China, Australia, Argentina
