New Tai Lue, also known as Simplified Tai Lue, is an alphabet used to write the Tai Lü language. Developed in China in the 1950's, New Tai Lue is based on the traditional Tai Le script developed ca. 1200 AD. The government of China promoted the alphabet for use as a replacement for the Old Tai Le script; teaching the script was not mandatory, however, and as a result many are illiterate in the new script. In addition, the countries of Burma, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam still use Old Tai Le.
