The Duna–Pogaya languages are a proposed small family of Trans–New Guinea languages in the classification of Voorhoeve (1975) and Ross (2005). However, connections between the two languages, Duna and Bogaya, are tenuous, and proposed connections to the larger Trans–New Guinea family are not convincing.
