The Northern Mindoro (North Mangyan) languages are one of two small clusters of languages spoken by the Mangyan people of Mindoro Island in the Philippines.[2]

The languages are Alangan, Iraya, and Tadyawan.

There is some evidence that points at a closer relationship of the Northern Mindoro languages with the Central Luzon languages. Both branches share the phonological innovation Proto-Austronesian *R > /y/ and some common lexical items such as *ʔakit "to see", *dimla "cold".[2][3][4]
