Achang (Ngachang)

The Achang language is a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in parts of Yunnan province in southern China by about 60,000 people (in 2007). Achang speakers are known as Achang or Maingtha, and the native name of the language is Ngachang [ŋa˨˩tʂhaŋ˨˩]. The language is also known as Ngochang, or 阿昌 (Āchāng) in Chinese.

Achang is spoken mainly in the counties of Longchuan (陇川县), Lianghe (梁河县) and Longling (龙陵县), and in Mang City (芒市 - formerly known as Luxi). Each area has its own dialect, and there is little mutual intelligibility between them.
