The Taz language (Russian: Тазкий язы́к or Tazkiy yazik) is a Sino-Tibetan language (according to some designations - a dialect) spoken by the Taz people, an ethnic group of mixed Sino-Manchu-Nanai-Udege origin living mainly in the Russian Far East.
The 2010 Russian Census counted 274 Taz people living in Russia; however, the overwhelming majority of fluent speakers of Taz are elderly and Russian tends to be the primary language of the group in contemporary times.
