The Jijili language, Tanjijili, also known as Ujijili, is a Plateau language of Nigeria. It is one of several languages which go by the name Koro.

Two languages or dialects, Koro-Ija and Koro-Zuba (collectively known as Ija-Zuba) are said to be "nearly intelligible" with Jijili, but no language data exists.[4]
