Tasawaq (Tuareg name: Tesăwăq), sometimes also called Ingelshi, is a Northern Songhay language spoken by the Issawaghan (or Ingalkoyyu), a community surrounding the town of Ingal in Niger. A closely related variety called Emghedeshie was spoken in Agadez but is now extinct.

Like other Northern Songhay languages, it has been strongly influenced by neighbouring Tuareg languages.
