The northwestern Makuran langauge family, a sub-grouping of the Makuran family which derives from Proto-Makuran, encompasses several branches of wildly divergent descendants. It is generally considered slightly more conservative than its direct sister-grouping, the northern Makuran branch; most northwestern languages preserve many features lost in their more north-eastern cousins.

The northwestern Makuran family is made up of two sub-branches, one of which branches further off:

  • Edāsan languages
    • Elahan (†)
    • Silari languages
      • Three major clades of Silari languages
  • Bentardari (†)

All northwestern languages share some common historical developments, both grammatical and phonological, that point to a common ancestor rather than a wave-like spead of changes.
