  Pahawh Hmong - Wikipedia
Shong Lue Yang selbst hielt sich für einen Gott und behauptete, dass ihm Pahawh vom Himmel für das Hmong-Volk verliehen worden sei.
Pahawh Hmong wird heute nur noch von Anhängern Shong Lue Yangs verwendet, aber die meisten Hmong sind dennoch stolz auf ihn und darauf, dass ihr Volk ein eigenes Schriftsystem entwickelt hat.
Außerdem wird Pahawh Hmong von den Hmong-Gemeinschaften in Kalifornien und Minnesota verwendet.

The Pahawh Hmong script represents both consonants and vowels with full letters.
Pahawh Hmong is unusual in that, while the inherent vowel /au/ is unwritten, so is the inherent consonant /k/.
That is, a Pahawh akshara appears to be a vowel with an inherent consonant rather than the other way around.

Hmong is a tonal language: The meaning of a word can be completely altered by pronouncing it in a different tone.
Since Hmong were illiterate, words were created by these missionaries, and given meaning accordingly to a phonetic-style rule.
White Hmong has largely been the more researched of the two dialects in the West, and many materials are more commonly translated into this dialect when presented in Romanized Phoenetic Alphabet system bevised by William Smalley, Yves Bertrais, and G. Linwood Barney.

 Hmong Studies Journal
The neglect of the Hmong military's role in promoting a specialized form of literacy in the Laotian language is perhaps explained by the relatively small number of Hmong who served as military scribes.
Although the specialized literacy skills practiced in the Hmong Army were specific and limited to the everyday operations of the military bureaucracy, the scribes--some of them, at any rate--would continue to use their specialized literacy skills in the months and years the Hmong military had ceased to function.
Briefly, the Hmong have long been considered an "oral" or "preliterate" people, meaning that they did not have a writing system for their language, and that many Hmong were unfamiliar with the concept of literacy (see, for example, Takaki, 1989, p.

Shong Lue Yang (* 1929; † 1971) war der Erfinder der Pahawh Hmong (einer eigenen Schrift für das Hmong-Volk) und der Pahawh Khmu’ (einer eigenen Schrift für das Khmu’-Volk, beides Völker, die im Grenzgebot von Laos und Vietnam leben.
Seinen eigenen Angaben zu Folge bekam er die Inspiration für Pahawh Hmong während eines Traumes.
Im Jahr 1959 begann Shong Lue Yang, der selbst ursprünglich Analphabet war, seine Schrift und seine religiösen Lehren in den Dörfern der Grenzregion zu verbreiten.

Over 5,000 years ago the Hmong, once highly developed with a rich culture in northeast China under the leadership of the Hmong king Chiyou, were invaded, conquered, and suppressed by the expansionist Chinese.
This is mainly because of the degree to which Hmong women have been indoctrinated by the teachings of the cultural norms.
__ The Pahawh Hmong alphabet was invented in 1959 by Shong Lue Yang, an illiterate Hmong farmer living in northern Laos close to the border with Vietnam.

If ever a day we, the Hmong people, are in true harmony and peace we will truly do all we can to help the Thailand in any way possible for all the things they have helped us with.
I want to also thank the Thai Government for accepting the Pahawh Hmong letters as another method of communication within their country so that it would enable the Hmong citizens to know what the country is up to.
For all the unfortunate Hmong people that has escaped Laos and entered into Thailand, we wish that the Thailand Royalties and their government may still feel love and sympathy for them and help them live in peace as they helped us in 1975.

Legend has it that the Hmong written language was destroyed by conquering Chinese who found it easier to overtake and rule an illiterate people.
Hundreds of years later in 1959, an uneducated visionary named Shong Lue Yang invented a completely new writing system for the Hmong language called, Pahawh Hmong, or otherwise known as the Mother Writing.
Because the Pahawh Hmong writing system was invented by a Hmong person, Yang feels, there are many benefits over the more popular Romanized version that people are regularly using today.

Some time back I posted an entry about the people called Hmong in the U.S. and Miao in most other places.
I've discovered a great site that has Miao mythical and historical narratives and songs both in translation and in the Miao syllabary with interlinear literal translations (pdf files).
Since this is your second post about the Miao/Hmong, I assume you would be interested to learn that there is another orthography for the Hmong language, invented in the 1950s by a Hmong messianic hero whose name escapes me. The orthography is a bizarre masterpiece.

 No. 20 Thai-Yunnan Project Newsletter March 1993
The native writing system, Pahawh Hmong, was invented by an illiterate peasant in Laos, Shong Lue Yang, who claimed to have been divinely inspired.
Through the four stages of development of Pahawh Hmong, Shong Lue progressively reduced the number of symbols to be learned (without sacrificing complete phonemic representation) and moved toward greater and greater systematicity.
With the exception of another book by the same three authors which tells the history of the script in triplicate - in English, Pahawh Hmong, and the romanized Hmong,60 there is no other reliable source on this fascinating phenomenon.

Klingon had long been proposed for inclusion in Unicode (September 1997), and roadmapped for codepoints
This was a favourite point to bring up in lay presentations of Unicode --- computer geeks couldn't make much of Unicode including Ugaritic or Pahawh Hmong, but "so comprehensive it even includes Klingon" was a point easy enough to make, and easy enough for the target audience to understand.
The official reason why the proposal was finally rejected in May 2001 (and left to languish in the meantime) was that there is no substantial information exchange in the script.
