What is Red Karen Language or Karenni or Kayah Language?

The Karenni language has a long history as a spoken language. It is known by many names. It can be called Western Red Karen, Karenni or KayahLi. Kayah refers to the largest ethnic group in Karenni State as well as the language. This language is derived from the Tibeto-Burman linguistic family.

Western Karenni dialects are part of a dialect continuum of Central Karen varieties stretching from Thailand. They include: Northern dialect of Western Kayah, Southern dialect of Western Karenni, Dawtama, Dawnnyjekhu, Sounglog, Chi Kwe, Wan Cheh.

The Karenni Literacy Center is an organisation that is trying to increase knowledge of the Karenni script and widespread understanding amongst Karenni people of their literacy heritage.

We hope that as Karenni People, we will be able to preserve our rich cultural and linguistic heritage long into the future.

Karenni Alphabet

Karenni Alphabet

There are three different alphabets for Kayah Li. The first two are based on Burmese and Latin, respectively. The third is newer and was developed by the Karenni leader Khu Htae Bu Phae in the 1950s. This script is called either KayahLi of Kyal Pho Gyi. It is now taught in the refugee camps.

Up until 2014, the KayahLi script was not taught in schools within Karenni State. This was part of a policy of discrimination by the Burmese military regime.

On September 8th 2014, the state assembly in Loikaw made a decision to allow the language to be taught in schools. The KayahLi script can now be studied inside Karenni State in addition to the Kayan (Padaung) language.
