Taliang (Tariang, Talieng, Trieng) is a Bahnaric language of Laos. There are various languages that have gone by the name Taliang/Trieng, which means 'headhunters'; SEALang classifies two of these as dialects of the same language as Kasseng.[2] Ethnologue lists the Kasseng dialect (Sidwell 2003) as a Katuic language.
