Tedim (Tiddim or Tedim Chin), is a Kukish language of India and Burma. In Chin State, it is spoken in Tedim and Tonzang townships, while in Sagaing Division, it is spoken in Kalay and Mawlaik townships (Ethnologue). Dialects are Sokte and Kamhau (also called Kamhao, Kamhow).
Tedim was the primary language spoken by Pau Cin Hau, a religious leader from the late 19th through early 20th centuries. He also devised a logographic and later simplified alphabetic script for writing materials in Chin languages, especially Tedim.
