The Mon language, formerly known as Peguan and Talaing, is an Austroasiatic language spoken by the Mon people, in Myanmar. Mon, like the related Khmer language, but unlike most languages in mainland Southeast Asia, is not tonal. The Mon language is a recognised indigenous language in Myanmar as well as a recognised indigenous language of Thailand.
Mon was classified as a "vulnerable" language in UNESCO's 2010 Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger. The Mon language has faced assimilative pressures in both Myanmar and Thailand, where many individuals of Mon descent are now monolingual in Burmese or Thai respectively.
Mon has three primary dialects in Burma, coming from the various regions the Mon inhabit. They are the Central (areas surrounding Mottama and Mawlamyine), Bago, and Ye dialects. All are mutually intelligible. Ethnologue lists Mon dialects as Martaban-Moulmein (Central Mon, Mon Te), Pegu (Mon Tang, Northern Mon), and Ye (Mon Nya, Southern Mon), with high mutual intelligibility among them.
Thai Mon has some differences from the Burmese dialects of Mon, but they are mutually intelligible. The Thai varieties of Mon are considered "severely endangered."
Mon was first written during the 6th century AD in two different scripts: one derived from the Grantha script, and one derived from the Kadamba or Grantha script. The Mon script first appeared in the Mayzedi inscriptions in 1113.
The Mon script originates in a southern Indian alphabet that was brought to Southeast Asia around the 3 th - 4th centuries. The Mon adapted the script to their own language. In the 11th resp. 13th centuries the Burmese and Thai took over the writing system from the Mon. The Mon script is basically a syllabic system. Vowel signs are added to the front, back, bottom or top of the consonant signs. The original values of many letters have changed during the recorded history of the Mon language, while the spelling has hardly been adjusted. The present day situation is therefore similar to the one of Englsih, where there is a great discrepancy between the written and the spoken forms of the language.
Although the Mon and Burmese writing systems are basically the same, Mon is more complex, making use of more superscript consonants (indicating consonant clusters) than Burmese. The sound values of many consonants are very different today, due to independent historical development of the two languages. This results in Burmese not being able to read Mon or Mon to read Burmese correctly.
In 2007, Mon speakers were estimated to number between 800,000 and 1 million. In Myanmar, the majority of Mon speakers live in Southern Myanmar, especially Mon State, followed by Tanintharyi Region and Kayin State.
The total population of Mon speakers today is guessed at about 1 mio. in Burma and Thailand, where mostly only people above 60 can speak the language fluently. Haevy influence from the dominant national languages can be seen in both Burmese and Thai varieties of Mon.
