Koho is a member of the South Bahnaric branch of the Austroasiatic language family. It is spoken by the Koho people (kon chau) mainly in Lâm Đồng Province in southern Vietnam. There are also Koho speakers in Bình Thuận, Ninh Thuận, Đòng Nai and Đắc Lắc provinces, and in the USA, particularly in North Carolina. In 2009 there were about 166,000 speakers of Koho in Vietnam. The language is also known as Caho, Co Ho, Coho or Kohor.
Several different ways of writing Koho have been developed by missionaries, government agencies and others since the 1930s. Translations of religious texts, grammars, dictionaries and other materials have been produced in the language. The orthography shown below was developed by the Vietnamese government in 1983.
