Ega, also known as Egwa and Diés, is a language of uncertain affiliation -- possibly a divergent Western Kwa language -- within the Niger–Congo language family spoken in Ivory Coast. It does not appear to belong to any of the traditional branches of Niger–Congo. Though traditionally assumed to be one of the Kwa languages, Roger Blench conservatively classifies it as a separate branch of the Atlantic–Congo family, pending a demonstration that it is actually related to the Kwa or Volta–Niger languages. Ega has the full noun class system for which the Bantu languages are known.
