Mos, or Tonga, is an aboriginal Mon–Khmer language of Malaya and Thailand. It also goes by the name Mos in Thailand, which it shares with Kensiu in Thailand, and Mos Tean-ean.

According to Benjamin (2011), Maniq (Məniʔ, Maniʔ) can refer to the following three or more speech varieties.

  • Tonga' (Toŋaʔ)
  • Mos (Mɔs)
  • Teanean (Ten'en, Tɛnʔɛn, Tean-ean)

This is another name shared with Kensiu.
