Arem is an endangered language spoken in a small area on either side of the LaosVietnam border. In 1996 there were estimated to be about twenty speakers in each country. It is therefore on the verge of extinction. Its nearest relative may be the Chut language of Vietnam.

Arem lacks the breathy phonation common to most Vietic languages, but does have glottalized final consonants.[3]
