Nones (German: Nonsberger Mundart) is a dialect named after and spoken in the Non Valley in Trentino, northern Italy. It is estimated that around 30,000 persons speak in Non Valley, Rabbi Valley and the low Sole Valley.

Some linguists argue that it is a dialect of the Ladin language, because it shares many similarities. It is alternatively considered as a dialect belonging to the range of Gallo-Italic languages of Northern Italy.
