Tai Nüa (also called Dehong Dai or Chinese Shan; own name: [tai lə], which means "upper Tai" or "northern Tai", or ᥖᥭᥰᥖᥬᥳᥑᥨᥒᥰ [tai taɯ xoŋ]; Chinese: Dǎinǎyǔ 傣哪语 or Déhóng Dǎiyǔ 德宏傣语; Thai: ภาษาไทยเหนือ [pʰaːsaː tʰai nɯːa] or ภาษาไทใต้คง [pʰaːsaː tʰai taikʰoŋ]) is one of the languages spoken by the Dai people in China, especially in the Dehong Dai and Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture in the southwest of Yunnan province. It is closely related to the other Tai languages. Speakers of this language across the border in Myanmar are known as Shan. It should not be confused with Tai Lü (Xishuangbanna Dai). There are also Tai Nüa speakers in Thailand. The ISO-639 Code tai covers all Tai languages that do not have their own code (Thai, Lao, Shan and Zhuang), including Ahom, Bouyei, Tai Dam, Tai Pong, and others. Note: To view Tai Nüa letters, you will have to download a Unicode font that contains Tai Nüa glyphs.
