Alas, Alas-Kluet, or Batak Alas, is an Austronesian language of Sumatra. The three dialects, Alas, Kluet, and Singkil (Kade-Kade), may not constitute a single language; Alas may be closer to Karo, and the others closer to Dairi. Generally, the Alas people themselves do not like the name 'Batak' because of their religion.
