This is a facsimile edition of the Wa-Praok vocabulary prepared by late Prof. Harry Shorto from data he collected in Kengtung (Kyaingtong) in the east of Shan State (Burma) in 1957. The entries in this Riang-Lang are written in Shorto’s phonemic transcription, they are glossed in English, and are richly augmented with etymological commentary that includes citations from Shan, Burmese, many Austroasiatic languages, and Shorto’s (then) preliminary Proto-Mon- Khmer reconstruction. The present word list was found among boxes kept by his daughter Anna, which she kindly donated to the present series editor (Sidwell) for the purposes of publication and archiving. The images were created by scanning the original pages at 300 DPI in black and white and OCR processed to create a usefully machine readable file.
