Tosu (Chinese: 多续 Duōxù) is a possibly extinct Qiangic language of China which shows strong affiliations to both the Loloish languages and to Tangut (Hsi-hsia). Yu (2012) classifies it as an Ersuic language, which belongs to the Qiangic branch. According to Yu (2012:1-2), there are "almost no Tosu speakers left", or "practically" no Ersu speakers left.
