Taram is language of Nigeria. It has traditionally been considered a dialect of Daka, but appears to be more divergent than that.[2][3] It is poorly documented, only attested in a publication from 1931.

Meek (1931) reported that Taram was spoken by the Daka living around the confluence of the Taraba River and the rivers Kam and Yim.[4]
