Description (user) :
The traditional Zhuang character script is an instance of a sinoxenic script, that is, a script in which the Chinese character script has been borrowed and modified to write a different language, in this case the Tai language now known as Zhuang. The Zhuang have a population of about 17 million and are China’s largest minority. This book is based on a survey of the use of the script in Zhuang speaking counties throughout Guangxi and contiguous provinces.
