Soqotri is spoken in Yemen in the Soqotra Archipelago on three inhabited islands (Soqotra, Samha, Abd al Kuri) and one island, Darsa, which is uninhabited but where people fish in the surrounding waters seasonally. The bulk of population of Soqotri speakers (c. 60,000 – no accurate census known) live on the main island, Soqotra. There are some emigre speakers in the Gulf and Oman.
