The Southern Mindoro (South Mangyan) languages are one of two small clusters of languages spoken by the Mangyan people of Mindoro Island in the Philippines.

The languages are Buhid, Tawbuid, and Hanuno'o.

These are among the few languages of the Philippines which continue to be written in indigenous scripts, though mostly for poetry.
