Who cherish the Hmong language?
« on: January 03, 2021, 09:49:10 PM »
I do. Why? Because it's as old as an ancient relic; yet, very poetic. It's more poetic than Chinese since the Chinese stole our writing style from us in the times of Chiyou.

May our hymns/Kwv Txhiaj be written down in Hmong before translation in other languages to be studied in Asian university.

If the Anglo-Saxon can do their job in British Literature History, then Hmong people have to start writing more and more to keep those intact Hmong Literature History. Why not?

Hymns pertain to gods. Do kwv txhiaj refer to gods?

Anyway, Hmong and Mandarin Chinese have beautiful sounds.

Tshuaj ntxhw

Txhem zaub

Zawv zawg

Ok. I don't know Mandarin, so I can't come up with Chinese words. But you all know what I mean.

At least it's closer to an old Plato-Aristocracy style at least. I really want Hmong literature to have their own textbooks; however, due to us not having a country, I understand that submitting a book to a university is quite hard. Why? Because of racism from all sorts of race.

Buy her books and let her write more.

Is this Kwv Txhiaj hymns as authentic as the old?
