Language: Caijia

Source/Author:  Bo Wenze 
Notes:  Bo Wenze [薄文泽]. 2004. "A Brief Introduction of Caijia Speech [蔡家话概况]". Minzu Yuwen.

Caijia is spoken by about 1,000 people in Hezhang and Weining Counties of western Guizhou province, China. Their autonym is men31 ni33. According to Chinese sources, this aberrant Tibeto-Burman language is likely related to the poorly attested Longjia (龙家) and Luren (卢人) languages of western Guizhou, and possibly also Bai of Yunnan. Caijia is not listed in Ethnologue.
