Alingpo (Chinese: 阿灵泼; also called Yiqing 彝青 or Dry Yi 干彝) is a Loloish language of eastern Yunnan, China. Li, et al. (2011) classifies Alingpo as an Eastern Yi language similar to Nasu and Gepo.

Alingpo is spoken by tens of thousands of people in Shizong County and Luoping County. In Shilin County, Alingpo is spoken in only one village, Yimeidu village 矣美堵村, by about 100 people.[1] In Shilin County, Alingpo speakers are surrounded by Sani speakers.
