Chapter Summary

This appendix provides some general information about Wa naming systems, based on Zhao Furong, Zhou and Yan and Wang and Chen. Far from being a single language, Wa encompasses a diverse cluster of closely related dialects, many of them not mutually understandable. Paraok and Bible Wa have reasonable currency as the de facto standard varieties of the language, and are widely understood.

Keywords: Bible Wa; Paraok Wa; Wa naming systems
