Pecheneg language is the extinct Turkic language spoken by the Pechenegs in Eastern Europe (most of Ukraine, parts of southern Russia, Moldova and Hungary) in the 7th–12th centuries.

It is most likely a member of the Oghuz branch of the Turkic family,[2] but the poor documentation to it and the absence of any descendant languages of Pecheneg have prevented linguists from making an accurate classification; most experts would be fairly confident in placing it among the Oghuz languages, but would refuse to classify it further.
