|Region||Tangoa Island, Vanuatu|
Tangoa, or Movono, is an Oceanic language spoken on Tangoa Island, south of Espiritu Santo Island in Vanuatu. The community was an early settlement for Christian missionaries, leading to its use as a linguafranca in the area.
Tangoa is one of the few languages of Vanuatu, and indeed of the world, possessing a set of linguolabial consonants.
