The '''Gur languages''' belong to the [[Niger-Congo languages]]. There are about 85 members belonging to this group. They are spoken in southeast [[Mali]], northern [[Côte d'Ivoire]], [[Burkina Faso]], northern [[Ghana]] and northern [[Togo]], [[Benin]] and northwest [[Nigeria]].
Like most Niger-Congo languages, Gur languages have a [[noun class]] system. A common property of Gur languages is the verbal [[grammatical aspect|aspect]] marking. Gur languages are [[tone language|tonal]]. The tonal systems of Gur languages are rather divergent. Most Gur languages have a two tone [[downstep]] system, but the tonal system of the Senufo subgroup is mostly analysed as a three level tone system (High, Mid, Low).
