Miisiirii (also called Mileri or Jabal[1]) is a language of western Sudan and Chad, spoken by the Mileri community of Jebel Mun (Jebel Moon) in Darfur who claim a dubious Messiria Arab descent,[2] they also have a few speakers scattered in Chad.[1]

Milerinkiya belongs to the Taman language family. It is often considered a dialect of Tama, though it is not particularly close.
