Abstract: This thesis attempts to examine the syntactic structures of the noun phrase in Awngi. The paper contains three chapters including the conclusion. Chapter 1 explains the background work of the thesis which involves a description about the Agew people, the Agew language and its classification, studies on Awngi and the purpose of the study. Chapter 2 discusses the noun phrase in Awngi. In so doing, methods of identifying Awngi noun phrases and the internal structure of the noun phrase, the distribution of the constituents, external distribution and functions of the noun phrase in Awngi have been presented. Chapter 3 deals with a summary of the major points discussed in the thesis. Awngi is an inflectional language. Any syntactic analysis may not be clearly discussed without an attempt of its morpho~ogical categories. Hence, a brief description of the noun morphology (gender, number and case inflections) has been appended to help readers understand the various inflectional elements in the thesis.
