The Marshallese language (Marshallese: new orthography Kajin Maje or old orthography Kajin Majl, [k?zin(e) mz]), also known as Ebon, is a Malayo-Polynesian language spoken in the Marshall Islands by about 44,000 people, and the principal language of the country. There are two major dialects: Rlik (western) and Ratak (eastern). Marshallese, a Micronesian language, is a member of the Eastern Oceanic subgroup of the Austronesian languages. The closest linguistic relatives of Marshallese are the other Micronesian languages, including Chuukese, Gilbertese, Kosraean, Nauruan and Pohnpeian. Marshallese shows 33% lexican similarity with Pohnpeian. Within the Micronesian archipelago, Marshallese along with the rest of the Micronesian language group are not as closely related to the more ambiguously-classified Oceanic language Yapese in Yap State, or to the Polynesian outlier languages Kapingamarangi and Nukuoro in Pohnpei State, and are even less closely related to the SundaSulawesi languages of Palauan in Palau and Chamorro in the Mariana Islands.?
