Northern Eastern Sudanic languages
|Northern Eastern Sudanic|
|Sudan, Eritrea, Egypt Chad, Nubia|
The Northern Eastern Sudanic, Eastern k Sudanic, Ek Sudanic, NNT or Astaboran languages form a primary division of the yet-to-be-demonstrated Eastern Sudanic family. They are characterised by having a /k/ in the pronoun "I/me", as opposed to the Southern Eastern Sudanic languages, which have an /n/. Nyima has yet to be conclusively linked to the other languages, and would appear to be the closest relative of Ek Sudanic rather than Ek Sudanic proper.
