Monumbo languages

Madang Province, Papua New Guinea
Linguistic classification: a possible primary family of Papuan languages
Glottolog: monu1249[1]

The Monumbo languages, Monumbo and the closely related Lilau, constitute a small language family on the north coast of Papua New Guinea. They have for several decades been lumped into the Torricelli family 100 km to the west, but "no evidence [for this] was ever presented".[2]
