Tai Dam language
Tai Dam, also known as Black Tai is a Tai language spoken by the Tai Dam in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, and China.

In particular, the Pali and Sanscrit additions to Thai and Lao are largely missing from Tai Dam. Tai Dam speakers in China are classified as part of the Dai nationality along with almost all the other Tai peoples. But in Vietnam they are given their own nationality where they are classified as the Thái nationality.
