The South Sulawesi languages are a group of languages spoken by the Bugis and related ethnic groups native to the Indonesian provinces South Sulawesi and West Sulawesi.

Languages[edit]

The position of the Tamanic languages, usually represented by Embaloh (Maloh), is unclear. Long left unclassified, Adelaar and Himmelmann (2005) propose that they are especially close to the Buginese.
