Source/Author:  Wardlaw & Edmondson 
Identifiers:  ISO-639-3:lha  Glottocode: laha1250 
Notes:  Source: Wardlaw, Terrance Randall. A phonological comparison between two varieties of Laha: Syllable constituents and tone in Ta Mit and Noong Lay Laha. M.A. Thesis, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2000.

Problems:  Data is scant, as this variety had only been documented by Edmondson in the late 1990's.
