Excerpt: Aleut (Unangam Tunuu) is a language of the Eskimo-Aleut language family. It is the heritage language of the Aleut () people living in the Aleutian Islands, Pribilof Islands, and Commander Islands. As of 2007 there were about 150 speakers of Aleut (Krauss 2007, p. 408). Aleut is alone with the Eskimo languages (Yupik and Inuit languages) in the Eskimo-Aleut group.

Attuan, now extinct, was a distinct dialect showing influence from both Atkan and Eastern Aleut.

Copper Island Aleut (also called Mednyj Aleut) is a Russian-Attuan creole (Copper Island (Russian:, Medny, Mednyj) having been settled by Attuans). Ironically, today Copper Island Aleut is spoken only on Bering Island, as Copper Islanders were evacuated there in 1969.
