Katso, AKA Kazhuo (autonyms: kʰɑ˥tso˧˩, kɑ˥tso˧˩; Chinese: 卡卓), is a Loloish language of Xingmeng Township (兴蒙乡), Tonghai County, Yunnan, China. The speakers are officially classified as ethnic Mongols, although they speak a Loloish language.

Katso speakers call themselves kʰɑ˥tso˧˩ (卡卓) or kɑ˥tso˧˩ (嘎卓) (Kazhuoyu Yanjiu).

Lama (2012) lists the following sound changes from Proto-Loloish as Kazhuoish innovations.

  • *x- > s-
  • *mr- > z-
