Distinct from the Anong described in this book are the Trung , who consist of about 6000 speakers residing in Gòngshan County and the Biingzhongluò area in the Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province . Their autonym is a nu? Investigation reveals that another group also designating themselves as Anong live in Gòngshan County; they are very closely related to Trung. Their language is a dialect of Trung, which can be called the Nujiang dialect of Trung. This Nujiang dialect of Anong language is very similar to Trung. This chapter carries out seven fieldwork trips in the Anong region, starting in 1960 spanning 40 plus years.
