Ye-Maek (예맥어; 濊貊語), also known as Yemaek and Maek, a Koreanic language of Manchuria and eastern Korea north of Silla spoken in the last few centuries BC. It is possibly ancestral to the Koguryoic.
|Region||Manchuria, northeastern part of the Korean peninsula|
The Yemaek people had historical ties to later Korean kingdoms and may have been ancestral to several, such as Gojoseon; the Ye of Yemaek are reported to have been a synonym for Buyeo and the Maek for Goguryeo. Their language may have been one of, or ancestral to, the Koguryoic languages.
