The Tamanic languages are a small group of languages of Indonesian Borneo:

Mbalo (Embaloh, incl. Kalis), Taman (Taman Dayak)

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