Kang [kyp], alternative name Tai Khang, is listed in E16/E17/E18/E19 as a Tai-Kadai language of Laos in the region bordering China but is not shown own the Laos map. The exhaustive survey of Tai peoples of Laos by Joachim Schliesinger 2003 finds no Tai-Kadai language matching this name and location. The Tai-Kadai languages matching the vaguely specified location are already counted in other entries in E16/E17/E18/E19 and the Tay Khang [tnu] language is spoken much too far south (in Bolikhamsai) and by a much smaller population ( Joachim Schliesinger 2003 ). Kang [kyp] is said to have have 47 600 speakers in Laos and thus could hardly have escaped survey. The entry is presumably a confusion of an existing language and the Tai-Kadai Tay Khang [tnu] language. See also: Tay Khang [tnu].
