The Goilalan languages are a family placed in the Trans–New Guinea family by Wurm (1975) and tentatively retained there in the classification of Malcolm Ross (2005). The languages,

are clearly related, especially northern Biagai, Kunimaipa, and Weri, which might be considered divergent dialects. Pronouns are northern 1sg ne, 2sg ni, 3sg pi; Tauade/Fuyug 1sg na, 2sg nu, though Tauade also has the possessive pronouns ne-ve, ni-e.
