Orang Kanaq language is one of the Aboriginal Malay languages and it is grouped under the Austronesian language family. It is spoken by the Orang Kanaq, which is one of the 19 Orang Asli groups living in Peninsular Malaysia.
Orang Kanaq is a variant of Malay which is distinct from the dialects spoken by ethnic Malays living near them. All members of the Orang Kanaq tribe are able to understand the language. However, the language's lexicon has been largely influenced by the Malay language.
