ABOUT THE LANGUAGE Vietnamese courses in Portland
About 3,000 years ago, communities of Mon-Khmer and Tay people merged in the northern Red River and Ma River Deltas. So these two groups developed a shared language; known as Viet-Muong, which was composed of two main dialects.
Lowlanders spoke “City” dialect; while people in midland and mountain regions spoke the “Highlanders” dialect. About 60 percent of modern Vietnamese words are of Chinese origin.
Many basic words, like geographical terms, were adopted from monotonal Mon-Khmer languages, while tonality came from Tai. Finally , in Vietnamese, each syllable has one of six tones; which completely alters the meaning of the word; and one, two or three of 11 distinct vowel sounds.
So, this is a complicated language, which, not surprisingly, has a complicated past. Talk and Chalk
