Tayart (Tayiṛt) is a dialect of the Tuareg language Tamasheq spoken in the Agadez Region of Niger.

Ethnologue lists two dialects: Air (Tayert) and Tanassfarwat (Tamagarast/Tamesgrest). Blench (2006) considers these two varieties to be distinct languages. He lists Ingal and Gofat as dialects of Air/Tayirt, and Azerori as a dialect of Tamesgrest.
