Alyutor is a Chukotko-Kamchatkan language spoken in the northern part of the Kamchatka Peninsula in the north east of Russia. It is spoken mainly in the village of Vyvenka (Вывенка), and also in Khailino. There are 25 native speakers, according to the 2010 census. The native name of the language, Нәмәлʔу [ˈnəməlʔən], means "villager" or "settled person". The language is also known as Aliutor, Alutor or Olyutor.

Few young people (under 35) speak Alyutor, however it is taught in the Vyvenka village school.

Alyutor was considered a dialect of Koryak until 1958, however it is not mutually intelligible with Koryak, and is now considered a separate language.
