The Gum languages are a small group of closely related languages in New Guinea. Malcolm Ross in his 2005 classification of TNG left them in the Mabuso family, but this was abandoned in Ethnologue 16, which placed them directly under Croisilles.

The languages are Amele, Bau, Gumalu, IsebePanim, Sihan.
