The Northern Mindoro (North Mangyan) languages are one of two small clusters of languages spoken by the Mangyan people of Mindoro Island in the Philippines.[2]

The languages are Alangan, Iraya, and Tadyawan.

Ronald Himes (2012)[3] and Lawrence Reid (2015)[4] suggest that the Northern Mindoro languages may group with the Central Luzon languages. Both branches share the phonological innovation Proto-Austronesian *R > /y/.
