The Yura or Thura–Yura languages are a group of Australian Aboriginal languages surrounding Spencer Gulf and Gulf St Vincent in South Australia, that comprise a genetic language family of the Pama–Nyungan family. The name Yura comes from the word for "person" in the northern languages; this is a lenited form of the thura found in other languages, hence Thura–Yura. Similar words for "person" are found in languages outside the group, however.


Dixon (2002) accepts a relationship between the two Yura dialect clusters, AdnyamathanhaKuyani and Barngarla, but not with the Kadli cluster (Nukunu, Kaurna, Ngadjuri, Narangga). Simpson and Hercus include both and add the Wirangu cluster (incl. Nauo).
