The Peninsular languages are a family of languages originally spoken on a large peninsula (Proto-Peninsular: *mrisaŋfa) in the southeastern corner of Peilaš. Their last common ancestor language is estimated to have been spoken around -1500 YP or up to a millennium earlier.

Speakers of Peninsular languages have migrated northeast across the Bay of Kasca, settling the island of Fmana-hŋ-Talam (PPI: "middle of the bay") and the region of Lotoka, on the mainland east of Huyfárah.
