The Southern Mindoro (South Mangyan) languages are one of two small clusters of Austronesian languages spoken by the Mangyan people of Mindoro Island in the Philippines.[2] They make up a branch of the Greater Central Philippine subgroup.[3]

The languages are Buhid, Tawbuid, and Hanuno'o.

These are among the few languages of the Philippines which continue to be written in indigenous scripts, though mostly for poetry.
