Pao [ppa] is listed in E16/E17/E18 as a Tibeto-Burman language of the scheduled tribe Pao of Madhya Pradesh in India. However, the Pao speak a variety of Bundelkhandi to themselves and others ( Singh, K. S. 1994: 977-979 , Hira Lal Shukla 1986 , K. S. Singh 1997: 63 ), a language which already has an E16/E17/E18 entry in Bundeli [bns]. The misclassification of Pao as a Tibeto-Burman languages in E16/E17/E18 presumably results from confusion of Pao in Madhya Pradesh with the Tibeto-Burman language Pa'o (of the Karenic subgroup) in Myanmar, also rendered as Pao ( Tatsuo Nishida 1966 ). See also: Bundeli [bns].
