E16/E17/E18/E19 has an entry Tareng [tgr] as a separate Katuic language of Laos, noting that it must be different from Talieng [tdf], located to the northwest, because Talieng [tdf] is Bahnaric. The Tareng [tgr] entry presumably derives from ( Stephen Wurm and Shirô Hattori 1981 :35 ) where it is indeed listed as Katuic. But there is only one (geographically discontinuous) language in Laos matching the geographic and other data in the two Tareng [tgr] and Talieng [tdf] entries ( L-Thongkum, Theraphan 2002 :104-105 , Joachim Schliesinger 2003 :47-49 ) and this language is Bahnaric ( L-Thongkum, Theraphan 2002 :104-105 , cf. Paul Sidwell 2015 :185 ), not Katuic. Presumably the existence of two entries rather than one comes from the Katuic/Bahnaric confusion. The Stieng [stg] entry of Vietnam may also represent the same language, though there is insufficient data available to me to validate one claim or the other ( Sidwell, Paul James 2009 :83 , Joachim Schliesinger 2003 :47-49 ). See also: Trieng [stg], Talieng [tdf].
