This chapter provides a typological profile of Northern Aslian, a subbranch of the Aslian branch of Austroasiatic comprising a number of closely related language varieties spoken in southern Thailand and northern Peninsular Malaysia. It builds on the authors' ongoing field research, as well as available sources. The profile is based on data from most known varieties of Northern Aslian, but draws in particular on the Ceq Wong (cwg), Jahai (jhi) and Maniq (tnz) languages, in accordance with the current research focus of each author.
