Porome was classified as a language isolate by Stephen Wurm. Although Malcolm Ross linked it to the Kiwaian languages, there is no evidence for a connection apart from the pronouns 1sg amo and 2sg do.
The independent pronouns and subject suffixes to the verb are as follows:
sg du pl 1 amo, -me amó-kai amó, -ke/-ki 2 do, -ke aia-kai a, -ka 3 da, -a/-bV abo-kai abo, -abo
