Abstract: This study describes the structure of noun phrases in Ilocano. Ilocano noun phrases are divided into three subclasses: simple noun phrases, which consist of nouns plus modifying words such as articles, demonstratives, adjectives, or numerals; complex noun phrases, which involve complex modifiers such as genitive modifiers and relative clauses; noun phrases without head nouns. The findings reveal that noun phrases in Ilocano are exocentric constructions, that is, constructions in which there are no constituents having a special status as heads. This description of Ilocano noun phrases contributes to better understanding of cross-linguistic variation of noun phrases.
