Representation of Niger-Congo Family Tree

Below is a representation of the Niger-Congo Family tree. Most Ivory Coast scholars now assign Ega to the Kwa language family, as shown below. There are, however, other competing theories for Ega's genetic classification. Ega has also been classified under the Kru subbranch, or as a language isolate or seafaring migrant (D. Gibbon p.c.).
