The family of North Huon Gulf languages is a subgroup of the Huon Gulf languages of Papua New Guinea. It consists of 3 languages, all of which are distinguished by severe truncation of many inherited roots and the compensatory development of suprasegmentals on vowels: phonemic tone in Yabem and Bukawa (Ross 1993) and nasalization in Kela (Johnson 1994).
