The Kadu languages, also known as Kadugli–Krongo or Tumtum, are a small language family, once included in Kordofanian but since Thilo Schadeberg (1981) widely seen as Nilo-Saharan. However, there is little evidence for either classification, and a conservative classification would treat the Kadu languages as an independent family.
