Hmong (Hmoob) or Mong (Moob), known as Miao in China, is a dialect continuum of the West Hmongic branch of the Miao languages, sometimes known as the Chuanqiandian Cluster, which is spoken by the Hmong people of Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, northern Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos. There are some 2.7 million speakers of varieties which are largely mutually intelligible, including 260,000 Hmong Americans. Over half of all Hmong speakers speak the various dialects of the Chuanqiandian cluster in China, and the Dananshan (大南山) dialect of Chuanqiandian forms the basis of the standard language in China, but Hmong Daw (White Miao) and Mong Njua (Green Miao) are more widely known overseas due to emigration. Hmongs in California were developing a Hmong-English online translator (as of 2012). There are also Hmong immigrants that live in Canada and France, though not as many as there are in the United States.
