Sotobangnalli Dialect (外離島方言, sotopanashima-puangngyang) is a Mikyoan Dialect spoken on the island of Sotobangnalli, which is in Illyomotei County. Sotobangnalli Dialect shares many similarities with other Far Eastern Mikyoan Dialects, such as preservation of the Middle Mikyoan tonal system, merger of voiced and unvoiced plosives, and more conservative grammar than Dialects. Today, Sotobangnalli Dialect is less common than in the past, but it is still used by some older residents of the island. Typically, Sotobangnalli Dialect is associated with the older generation and thus is often perceived as sounding old fashioned or as dated. Because of this, many younger Sotobangnalli residents tend to speak in a dialect more similar to the Standard Mikyoan Dialect or the Illyomotei Dialect, or they will speak a more standard form of Mikyoan with only a small influence of the local dialect.

Unlike many other dialects, Sotobangnalli Dialect (as well as most other Far Eastern Dialects), feature the preservation of Middle Mikyoan phonemes and also have sound changes directly from older forms of Mikyoan. Sotobangnalli features more tones than nearby the Uchibanalli Dialect, however, it has fewer tones than the Yongnagumei Language, which it is more distantly related to.
