Gule, also known as Anej, Fecakomodiyo, and Hamej, is an extinct language of Sudan. It is generally classified as one of the Koman languages. However, Glottolog judges that the evidence for this is insufficient.[3]

The language was spoken by the inhabitants of Jebel Gule in Blue Nile State, Sudan.[3] Speakers had shifted to Arabic by the late 20th century.
