Comment:
Mulao (10586-giu) = Critically Endangered (60 percent certain, based on the evidence available)

There are two Southeast Asian Tai-Kadai languages surfacing under the name Mulao, one in the Kam-Sui subgroup ( Wang Jun and Zheng Guoqiao 1980 ) and one (nearly extinct) the Gelao subgroup ( Bo, Wenze 2003 ). E16 accurately reflects the Kam-Sui one in the Mulam [mlm] entry, which even contains the correct clarificatory statement ``Different from the nearly extinct Ge-Yang Tai-Kadai language also called Mulao''. However, there is no entry in E16 for the other Mulao language. See also: Mulam [mlm].
