Ye-Maek, also known as Yemaek and Maek, is an unclassified and arguably unattested language of Manchuria and eastern Korea north of Silla in the last few centuries BCE.
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 Buyeo languages.
