Takuña is a language of the Núalís-Takuña family. It is the variety indigenous to the islands colonised by the speakers of Mûtsipsa'.
Like other members of its family, Takuña has a comparatively small phoneme inventory; this inventory, however, is considerably larger than that of its ancestor due to the development of a series of long consonants. Historically, its consonants have been less stable than its vowels; its monophthongs have remained virtually unchanged since its reconstructed ancestor, PNT. It is characterised by processes causing vowel nasalisation and by a phonemic vowel register involving lowered tone and creaky phonation.
