Tunni (also known as Af-Tunni) is an Afro-Asiatic language spoken by the Tunni sub-group of the Rahanweyn Somali clan, who reside in the Lower Shebelle and Middle Juba regions in southern Somalia. The language is typically classified among the Digil group of Cushitic languages. Tunni is distinct from Somali, with a different phonology and sentence structure.
