The Melanau–Kajang languages or Central Sarawak languages are a group of languages spoken in Sarawak, Malaysia, by the Melanau, Kenyah, and related peoples.
Smith (2017) uses the term Central Sarawak, and puts it as an independent branch within the Greater North Borneo subgroup. He classifies the languages as follows.
- Melanau (Dalat, Sarikei, Mukah, Balingian, Matu, Sibu, Kanowit)
- Kajang (Kejaman, Sekapan, Lahanan)
- Punan Bah, Punan Tubu, Sajau
- Punan Lisum, Punan Aput, Beketan, Ukit, Buket
