Maza (autonym: ma33 zɑ53) is a Lolo-Burmese language spoken by the Yi people of China.
Maza is spoken by about 50 people in the village of Mengmei 孟梅 (Maza: qʰa33 le55), Puyang Village 普阳村, Muyang Township 木央乡, Funing County, Yunnan. Maza has a Qabiao substratum, since the area was originally inhabited by Qabiao speakers (Hsiu 2014:68-69). Maza displays circumfixal negation, a syntactic feature that is usually typical of Kra languages.
