Where Twi language is spoken

Have you heard about the Twi language?

 Twi is spoken mainly in Ghana, the Cote d'Ivoire, Togo. In total it is spoken by about 17-18 million people. It is a native language of 2 main  sub-groups of the Akan people, who live across these countries.



 Like many other African languages, it is a tonal language. It means that word distinction is determined not only by vowels and consonants as usual, but also by the pitch and stress on which each syllable is pronounced. 


 For example, 01.gif (914 bytes) (high-high) 'good', 02.gif (914 bytes) (low-high) 'father', and 03.gif (911 bytes) (low-low) 'fan' are separate words that differ only in tone.
