Sorsoganon or Sorsogon Bikol (Bikol: Bikol Sorsogonese) is a group of Bisakol languages spoken in the province of Sorsogon in the Bicol Peninsula of Luzon Island in the Philippines. They are closely related to Waray. There are two principal varieties, which are distinct enough to be considered separate languages: Southern Sorsogon (also known as Gubat and Waray) and Central Sorsogon (also called Masbate Sorsogon).
