Abstract: For many centuries, like a number of other non-sinitic peoples in the south of China, the Tai people now known as the Zhuang have made use of a character script derived from Chinese. The Zhuang are a Tai-speaking people primarily inhabiting present-day Guangxi, but also parts of Guizhou, Guangdong, and Yunnan; they are closely related to the Bouyei in Guizhou and the Nùng and Tày in northern Vietnam. The character script they use varies from place to place and has traditionally been used to write song texts, narrative verse, moral homilies, casual notes, and liturgical scriptures recited in the local language by vernacular priests. The present article examines evidence for a layer of Old Chinese readings in the recitations of the vernacular priests, based on a survey of traditional texts from 45 locations.
