South Sulawesi languages

South Sulawesi
Linguistic classification: Austronesian
  • Bugis
  • Makassar
  • Lemolang
  • Seko

Glottolog: sout2923[1]

The South Sulawesi languages are a group of languages spoken by the Bugis and related peoples of South Sulawesi province, Indonesia.


The position of the Tamanic languages, usually represented by Mbalo (Maloh, Embalo), is unclear. Long left unclassified, Adelaar and Himmelmann (2005) propose that they are especially close to the Buginese.
