The language on Norfolk is English, but you'll also often hear locals speaking Norf'k, a unique language derived from the speech of the Bounty Mutineers and their Tahitian wives who settled Pitcairn Island in 1790. It has a lilting quality, it's very pleasant on the ear.
The United Nations has added Norf'k to its list of endangered languages.
