Aja (also: Adja, Ajja; ISO 639-3) is spoken in the northwest of South Sudan, in the Western Bahr al Ghazal state. It is assigned to the Central Sudanic language family, although a final classification is still pending. The last reliable figures on the speaker population date back to 1993 and included about 200 speakers. This makes Aja a highly endangered if not already extinct languages of Africa. The data used goes back to the Italian missionary Stefano Santandrea who published his description of Aja in 1976. This talk focuses on the description of the noun phrase as a part of my master's thesis "Santandrea's Aja corpus and a description of the nominal morphosyntax".
