Kapampangan is an Austronesian language spoken mainly in the provinces of Pampanga and the southern part of Tarlac province in the Philippines.
It is the 7th most spoken native language of the Philippines with around 2.8 million speakers.
The Kapampangan-speaking areas are located relatively to the immediate north of the Tagalog (Filipino) areas such as Manila.
There are several words in Kapampangan that are interestingly more similar to Malay and Indonesian than to its neighbor Tagalog (Filipino), the National Language of the Philippines.
