The Ik language, also known as Icetot, Icietot, Ngulak, or (derogatory) Teuso, Teuth, is one of the Kuliak languages of northeastern Uganda. The Ik people have a positive attitude toward their language, which is increasing; with Tepes being moribund, Ik may soon be the sole remaining language of its family. Terrill Schrock has recently written a doctoral dissertation which supports this idea, titled A grammar of Ik (Icetod) Northeast Uganda’s last thriving Kuliak language. Ik is noted by UNESCO as "severely endangered".
Ik is supported in Unicode starting with version 8.0.0.
