Lampung is the language of the Indonesian province of Lampung at the southern tip of Sumatra. It is a dialect cluster with two main dialects, perhaps distinct enough to be considered distinct languages: Abung/Pepadun (Lampung Nyow) and Pesisir/Say Batin (Lampung Api). A third, Komering, is sometimes considered part of Lampung Api, by others a distinct language. Lampung Api is the prestige variety.
Before the introduction of the Roman script, Lampung was written in a script called "Aksara Lampung", which is a variant of the Ulu scripts used throughout central and south Sumatra. The script is little known nowadays but occasionally taught at schools.
Numerals in Lampung Nyow are 1 "say", 2 "ʁuwo", 3 "tigo", 4 "pak", 5 "limo", 6 "nəm", 7 "pitəw", 8 "waləw", 9 "siwo", 10 "ngəpuluh", 11 "səbəlas", 100 "səʁatus", 1000 "səʁibu".
