Kaco’ is an Austro-Asiatic language of Vietnam. The two dialects, Kaco’ and Romam, are quite distinct. Lamam (Lmam) is a clan name found among the Kaco', not a distinct language.

In Vietnam, Romam (Rơ-măm) is spoken in Le village, Sa Thầy district, Mo Rai commune, Kon Tum province (Đặng, et. al 2010:115).[2]
