The Asa (Aasá) language, commonly rendered Aasax, was an apparently Cushitic language spoken by the Asa people in Tanzania. The language is extinct; ethnic Assa in northern Tanzania remember only a few words they overheard their elders use, and none have ever used it themselves. Little is known of the language; what is recorded was probably Aasa lexical words used in a register of Maasai, rather like the mixed language Mbugu. Indeed, it is not entirely clear if the prior pure Aasa was Cushitic, or if it retained a non-Cushitic layer from an earlier language shift. If Cushitic, it is thought to have been most closely related to Kw'adza.
