Wanman (Warnman) is a possibly extinct Australian Aboriginal language, of the Wati branch of the Pama–Nyungan family. It was spoken near Jigalong in Western Australia by Wanman (Warman) who are a subgroup of Martu (Mardu) people.

Antakarinya might be closer to Wanman than it is to the Western Desert Language.
