Eastern Pomo, or Clear Lake Pomo, is a Pomoan language spoken around Clear Lake in Lake County, California. Only a few elderly people currently speak the language, though efforts are being made to revive it and to develop a standardized spelling system. Eastern Pomo is not mutually intelligible with the other Pomoan languages.
