|Region||Bangka and Belitung islands|
The Orang Laut language or Loncong, is one of the Malayan languages. It is one of several native languages of Orang Laut ("Sea People") of the Bangka and Belitung islands in Indonesia, and may be two distinct languages.
Anderbeck (2012) considers there to be an Orang Laut genetic grouping of languages, which includes the Kedah, Riau, and Sekak subgroups. The Malayic language Duano is divergent, and does not form part of this group.
