Pohnpeian is a Micronesian language spoken by about 29,000 people, mostly on Pohnpei Island and the Caroline Islands in the Federated States of Micronesia. Ngatikese, Pingelapese and Mokilese are classified as dialects of Pohnpeian, or as closely related languages.
Pohnpeian is written with the Latin alphabet using an orthography developed by German missionaries.
H is used to indicate a long vowel, e.g. ah = /a:/.
