Longuda (Nʋngʋra) is a Niger–Congo language of Nigeria. Joseph Greenberg counted it as a distinct branch, G10, of his Adamawa family. Boyd (1989) assigned it a branch within Waja–Jen. When Blench (2008) broke up Adamawa, Longuda was made a branch of the Bambukic languages.
The current number of speakers is unknown. Ethnologue cites an SIL figure of 32,000 from 1973.
Variants of the name 'Longuda' include Languda, Longura, Nunguda, Nungura, Nunguraba.
In the Adamawa Languages Project website, Kleinewillinghöfer (2014) lists five dialects in the Longuda dialect cluster.
