Zaiwa Bible - New Testament

Zaiwa (autonym: tsau˧˩va˥˩; Tsaiwa, Tsaiva, 载瓦) is a Burmish language spoken in parts of China and Burma. There are around 100,000 speakers. It is also known as Atsi, its name in Jingpo. Other names for the language include Atzi, Azi, Aci, Aji, Atshi, Atsi-Maru, Maru, Zi, Tsaiwa, Szi and Xiaoshanhua. Pela (Bola), with 400 speakers, was once classified as a dialect. From the 1950s Zaiwa was using Roman script. A Gospel of Mark was published in Zaiwa in 1938 in the Fraser alphabet, and in 1951 in Roman script.
