Shompen Language is basically spoken by hunter gatherers in the hilly area of the great Nicobar Island. Around 400 people speak this language. This has been included in the Nicobarese languages which are a part of Austro Asiatic family.
It appears that Shompen might be an isolated language though there is not enough proof to support this claim. It is highly probable that this language might be a divergent branch of a neighbouring language family. There are seven vowel qualities all of which may be nasalized. Shompen has vowel length for all vowel qualities.
