Taliang (Tariang, Talieng, Trieng) is a Bahnaric language of Laos. It is possibly the same as the Stieng language of Vietnam and Cambodia.[3]

There are various languages that have gone by the name Taliang/Trieng, which means 'headhunters'; SEALang classifies two of these as dialects of the same language as Kasseng.[4]
