This paper describes noun phrases in Zahrani Spoken Arabic (ZSA). A noun phrase is shown to contain different structures. It may have a simple structure containing a noun, a pronoun or a noun with a modifier like adjectives, numerals, quantifiers or demonstratives. It may also have a complex structure in which it consists of more than one adjective or more than one modifier. The word order of any noun phrase is connected to the semantic category of the adjective. The agreement system in NPs depends on the position of the adjective (or the modifier) with its head noun
