Tarama is a Southern Ryukuan language spoken on Tarama (多良間島) and Minna (水納島), two of Miyako islands (Meeku / 宮古列島) in Okinawa Prefecture in southern Japan. It is spoken by a small number of people over 60 years old.
Tarama is known as 多良間方言 (Tarama dialect) in Japanese. It is closely related to Miyakoan, although there is little mutual intelligibility between them, and some sources classify it as a dialect of Miyakoan.
Tarama can be written with hiragana or katakana, the Japanese syllabaries.
