Donot let your whole family speak other dialect except our mother tongue(read: Zo) especially in your residence and its compound. Never forget to give first priority to your nationality, culture, custom, mother tongue and God. Keep your nationality by preserving your valuable cultures and customs which are as precious a silver and gold, that your almighty God purposely and especially provide for you from the beginning of the creation of the world.(Ibid.Page 332)
Actually, words that are used in Zo songs are common language which are widely used by Zomi of Tedim and Ton Zaang townships. In fact, some Zo traditional songs have been used in Christian songs. To be in line with the present situation as well as for the preservation of Zo traditinal songs and cultures, the Zo Christians should consider the used of Zo traditional songs in praising God. Since, Zo traditional songs are as precious as silver and gold, it is our task to maintain and preserve such a valuable merit handed down from generations to generations. (Ibid.Page 333)
The original tongue of the Zote might be Hâidawi dialect. As the Israelites retained the Hebrew language so also if we are going to retain our real mother tongue, we must speak Hâidawi dialect, for it was the first and lingua Franca of the Zote descendants. Similarly, if anyone among the Zote descendants would like to print any book or Bible, he would use the Hâidawi dialect words, not because of its fitness but only for it originality. I believe we all agree to give first priority to Haidawi dialect as our Zote- original mother tongue.(Ibid.Page 442).
