The Burmese-Lolo, Tai-Kadai, Miao-Yao and Chinese languages form a loose Sprachbund in
Southwest China with hundreds of languages coexisting and assimilating to each other.
Shared language patterns include grammaticalized prepositions and aspect particles.

Meanwhile individual languages showcase highly idiosyncratic properties not paralleled
in any genetically or areally related language. In his fieldwork, the author encountered a
range of rare sound phenomena: a bilabial trill in Nuosu, eleven retroflexive consonants in
Neasu, five plain versus nasalized vowel pairs in Xong and nine contrastive tones in Kam
two of which are undulated.
