High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Lao Script or Aksone
Lao is the main script used to write the Lao language and other
minority languages in Laos. The script is ultimately of Indic
origin, the alphabet includes 27 consonants, 7 consonantal
ligatures, 33 vowels (some based on combinations of symbols), and 4
tone marks. According to Article LXXV of Constitution of the Lao
People's Democratic Republic, the Lao alphabet is the official
script to the official language, but is also used to transcribe
minority languages in the country, but some minority language
speakers continue to use their traditional writing systems while
the Hmong have adopted the Roman Alphabet. An older version of the
script was also used by the Lao people of Thailand, the Thai Isan,
until its use was banned and supplemented with the Thai alphabet in
1871, although the region remained distant culturally and
politically until further government campaigns and integration into
the Thai state (Thaification) were imposed in the 20th century.
