Vietnamese was identified more than 150 years ago to be part of the Vietic (or Viet-Muong) grouping of the Mon-Khmer branch of the Austroasiatic language family (a family that also includes Khmer, spoken in Cambodia, as well as various tribal and regional languages, such as the Munda languages spoken in eastern India, and others in southern China). Mường is the language that is most closely related to Vietnamese.
Even though this is supported by etymological comparison , some linguists[attribution needed] still believe that Viet-Muong is a separate family, genealogically unrelated to Mon-Khmer languages.
