The Akan language is a group of dialects within the larger Niger-Congo language, whose other branches include Swahili, Yoruba, Igbo and Zulu. The subgroup of Akan known as Twi includes the dialects of Akuapem and Asante. This guide features Asante Twi. The Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast are the largest ethnic group in both countries, and have a population of roughly 20 million people. Akan cultural traditions, such as the vibrant kente cloth and folktales of Anansi the spider, are known world-wide. Ghana's rapid economic growth, due to its gold, cocoa and petroleum industries, has led increased interest in Twi by non-Akan speakers. This unique, two-part resource provides travellers to Ghana and the Ivory Coast with the tools they need for daily interaction. The bilingual dictionary has a concise vocabulary for everyday use, and the phrasebook allows instant communication on a variety of topics. Ideal for business-peoples, travellers and aid workers. Features: 4,000 dictionary entries; Phonetics that are intuitive for English speakers; Essential phrases on topics such as transportation, dining out and business; Concise grammar and pronunciation sections
