- Amto-Musan languages
Amto-Musan is a
language familyof two closely related but not mutually intelligible Papuan languages, Amto and Siawi, of the Sandaun Provinceof Papua New Guinea. Amto-Musan was unclassified by Ross due to lack of data. The family has typological similarities with the Busa language isolate, but these do not appear to demonstrate a genetic relationship.
