Abom is a nearly extinct language spoken in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea. According to a 2002 census, only 15 people still speak this language, all elderly. It appears to be the most divergent Tirio language. Its lexical similarity with other Tirio languages is 14% with Bitur, 12% with Baramu, 11% with Makayam, and 9% with Were. All of the speakers are older adults. Middle-aged adults have some understanding of it, but no children speak or understand Abom.
