Chuukese a member of the Micronesian branch of the Austronesian languages. The language is also known as Chuuk, Lagoon Chuukese, Ruk, Truk or Trukese, and is spoken by about 48,000 people on the islands of Chuuk in the Caroline Islands in Micronesia.

Missionaries devised a way to write Chuukese using the Latin alphabet during the 19th century. In the 1970s linguists modified the missionaries' system with the addition of the accented letters.
