The Sula–Buru languages are a group of Austronesian languages (geographically Central–Eastern Malayo-Polynesian languages) spoken on the Buru and Sula Islands in the eastern Moluccas. Buru itself has almost forty thousand speakers, and Sula about twenty thousand.
The languages are
- Buru: Buru, Lisela, Palumata (extinct), Moksela (extinct)
- Sula: Sula, Mangole
- Taliabo (Kadai, Padang/Samala, Mananga, Mangei/Soboyo)
Another extinct Buru language may be Hukumina, but that may not have been indigenous to the island.
