Sani (Chinese: 撒尼 Sani) is one of the Loloish languages spoken by the Yi people of China. It is one of six Yi languages recognized by the Chinese government, under the name Southeastern Yi (the others being Northern Yi, Western Yi, Central Yi, Southern Yi, Southeastern Yi and Eastern Yi).
The Sani [sa˨˩ni˨˩] call themselves [ni˨˩]. Their language is distinct from the closely related Samei, whose speakers call themselves Sani [sa˨˩ni˥˧]. (Ethnologue 2009)
