Namuyi (21-nmy) = Endangered (100 percent certain, based on the evidence available) (The language is well preserved in the communities of dʑa⁵³qa⁵³tu¹¹, dʐə¹¹qu¹¹, and ʂa⁴⁴pa⁵³ –– particularly so in dʑa⁵³qa⁵³tu¹¹, where only residents under the age of twenty who have attended primary school can speak Chinese. In dʐə¹¹qu¹¹ and ʂa⁴⁴pa⁵³, Namuyi residents speak Namuyi among themselves and fluent Nuosu and passable Chinese to people who prefer to speak those languages. Namuyi is less well preserved in ɕa¹¹ma¹¹kʰu⁵³, where almost all Namuyi people also speak Nuosu and Chinese: residents born before 1955 speak Namuyi to each other, but while younger people understand a great deal of Namuyi, they prefer to converse in Nuosu or Chinese.)
