|Linguistic classification:||Trans–New Guinea ?
The Teberan languages are a well established family of Papuan languages that Stephen Wurm (1975) grouped with the Pawaia language as a branch of the Trans–New Guinea phylum. Malcolm Ross (2005) tentatively retains both Teberan and Pawaia within TNG, but sees no other connection between them.
