An Introductory Course in Ga. Final Report.
Berry, Jack; Kotei, Nii Amon
This course in Ga was designed for use by a teacher who is a professional linguist, perhaps with the assistance of a native speaker of Ga. In preparing the course, the authors had in mind that Ga has not yet been accorded the detailed description and analysis that some other Ghanian languages have received. This is especially true in matters of tone and intonation. Their principal aim, accordingly, has been to present a working analysis of the more important features of modern spoken Ga, as well as sufficient additional material for further analysis by users of the course themselves. The first six lessons use a number of drills to lay the basis for familiarity with and control of the sound system. The remaining 59 lessons center around different aspects of structure. All lessons supply material for repetition by the students--conversations and structure drills. Some lessons also contain quizzes to test the student's understanding of the text. Answers to these quizzes are included in the tapes which accompany the course and so may be used by the student to check his answers. For information on obtaining the tapes, write to the authors at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois 60201. An appendix contains an outline of the derivation of the plural forms of nouns from the singular. A glossary concludes the text. (Author/DO)
