Akeanon (also Aklanon) is a dialect spoken in the Philippines. It is one of two Visayan languages (the other being Malaynon) native to Aklan. Predominantly spoken in Aklan and Northern Capiz, it is also spoken in the municipality of El Nido and in some parts of Narra, Quezon, Roxas and Sofronio Española in Palawan. Around 500,000 speakers uses Aklanon according to the 1995 National Statistics Office (NSO) census.

Aklanon is unique among Philippine languages since it possesses the digraph ea ("l" pronounced with rolling "r" sound). According to legend, the digraph originated from the first ruler of Aklan, Datu Bangkaya, who had a short tongue and therefore could not pronounce the "l" sound.
