Marind is a Papuan language spoken in Papua New Guinea by over ten thousand people. Dialects are Southeast Marind, Gawir, Holifoersch, and Tugeri. Bian Marind (Northwest Marind), a.k.a. Boven-Mbian, is divergent enough to not be mutually intelligible, and has been assigned a separate ISO code.
Marind separates the Trans-Fly – Bulaka River languages, which would otherwise occupy a nearly continuous stretch of southern New Guinea.
