Some linguists have worked on some aspects of morphological processes in Akan. This book gives a detailed account of some segmental and tonal morphemes which are attached to stems to either change the category in which they are (derivational affixes), or just modify the meanings of those lexical items (inflectional affixes). The book is based on topics in Linguistics (Morphology) courses in Ghanaian Universities, Training Colleges, Secondary and Basic schools. It was directed and edited by some eminent professors and lecturers. Some Morphological Processes in Akan is structured to include some important aspects in morphology, phonology, syntax and semantics of Akan lexicon. It also gives basic syntactic rules to account for sentence structure. By this, the word classes whose morphology is being studied is defined. The book is full of examples and sentences in our everyday language in a familiar Ghanaian context. It is of immense importance to students of Twi, linguists, foreigners, creolists and universalists interested in either the development of the language or its use.
