The Hmong language is spoken with many dialects. But 2 stands out, they are called the White and Green Hmong.They get their names from the color of the women's traditional clothing. Creators Pollard Script ( Pollard Miao) Dialects White Hmong(Hmoob Dawb) is the more proper way of speaking. Green Hmong(Hmoob Leeg/Njua) has the accent.
