Samo (Sane, San, Sa) is a dialect cluster of Niger-Congo languages spoken in Burkina Faso. They are unclassified within Niger–Congo.[3] They are also called the Samuic languages by Güldemann (2018), who tentatively classifies them as part of the Gur languages.[3]


Intelligibility between its varieties is low. The following have been coded as separate languages:[4]
