Konjo is the common name for two closely related, but distinct Austronesian languages of Sulawesi, Indonesia, viz. Highland Konjo and Coastal Konjo. They share about 75% common basic vocabulary.


Highland Konjo is spoken in Bone, Bulukumba, Gowa, and Sinjai regencies of South Sulawesi province, and the interior of the southern peninsula (Ethnologue). It is also spoken in the northwest of the Mount Lompobatang area.

Coastal Konjo is spoken in Bantaeng, Bulukumba, and Sinjai regencies of South Sulawesi province, and around the Selayar Strait (Ethnologue).
