Tedim (Tidim)

Tedim is a member of the Kukish branch of the Sino-Tibetan language family. It is spoken in Chin State in northwestern Burma / Myanmar, particularly in the townships of Tedim, Tonzang, Kale, Sagain and Mawlaik. There are also speakers of Tedim in Assam, Manipur and Mizoram states in northern India. In 1990 there were about 189,000 speakers of Tedim in Burma, and about 155,000 in India. The language is also known as Hai-Dim, Tedim, Tiddim, Zomi or Tedim Chin.

A script for Tedim, and related languages, was developed in the early 20th century by Pau Cin Hau (1859-1948), who also created a religion known as Laipian ('script religion'). The script is known as the Pau Cin Hai script, Tual lai ('local script') or Zotuallai. Tedim is now written with the Latin alphabet.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
