Fante language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.

 

Origin and History

Fante is also known as Fanti, Fantse, or Mfantse and is one of the three major members of the Akan dialect continuum, together with Asante and Akuapem, the latter two collectively known as Twi, with whom it is mutually intelligible. It is spoken in the central and southern regions of Ghana as well as in settlements in other regions of western Ghana. In primary and secondary schools, a standardised form of Fante is taught. 

 

Dialects

Some Fantes are bilingual or dialectal, and Twi can be spoken by most. Two major Fante dialect classes are defined by Schacter and Fromkin: Fante 1, which uses the syllable-final /w/ and thus distinguishes kaw ('dance') and ka ('bite'); and Fante, where these terms are homophonous.

Fante is the traditional dialect of the people of Fante, whose groups each have sub-dialects of their own, including Agona, Anomabo, Abura, and Gomoa, all of which are mutually intelligible. The extent of English presence, including English loanwords and anglicised versions of native names, is one striking feature of the Fante dialect, owing to British colonial influence.
