Capiznon (Spanish: capiceño Local: Capisano, Kapisano is an Austronesian language spoken in Western Visayas in the Philippines. Capiznon is concentrated in the province of Capiz in the northeast of Panay Island.
It is a member of the Visayan languages family and the people are part of the wider Visayan ethnolinguistic group, who constitute the largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group.
It is often confused with Ilonggo or Hiligaynon, but it has its own unique vocabulary and accent.
The Capiznon vocabulary also includes Akeanon and Waray words.
The Capiznon can also be claimed as the fastest language in the region.
Rural farmers speak a certain variety (characterized by the corruption of "l" sounds) that is now disappearing as the younger Capiznons adopt a more Ilonggo-like language with a slower pace and softer and longer vowels.
