This study presents a first introduction to the phonological, morphosyntactic and pragmatic structure of Tima, a poorly-known language in Sudan whose wider genetic affiliations still need to be clarified. A number of structural properties of Tima, being of particular interest from an areal and general typological point of view, are discussed in more detail below: The highly reduced noun-class system with remnants of a more extensive former system, its discourse-configurational structure, and split ergativity.
