Munji

Audio recordings: Andrew Hsiu. (2017). Munji audio word list. Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1123381

On April 29, 2013, I documented Munji of Hetaowan 核桃湾, Yongli 永利村, Donggan Township 董干镇, Malipo County, Yunnan, China. Recordings were collected from two Munji speakers, who were father and son. The father knew a few words that the son did not know.

Munji is spoken by the Flowery Yi of Donggan Town, Malipo County, Yunnan. It is closely related to Mantsi of Vietnam, as the similar-sounding autonyms would imply.

Munji data was collected by myself in April 2013 in Hetaowan 核桃湾, Yongli Village 永利村, Donggan Township 董干镇, Malipo County, Yunnan, while Mondzi is from YYFC (1983), as cited in the appendix of Lama (2012). Mongi data is from the appendix of Chen Kang (2010).

My Munji informants in Yongli Village 永利村, Donggan Township 董干镇, Malipo County reported that their ancestors had come from the Wuhua Mountains 五华山 of Kunming.
