This book reports on a spectrographic study of 12 vowel phonemes of the Ga and Dangme languages.
The aim of the study is to provide a systematic description of the vowel phonemes of the two languages.
The result of the study reveals that Ga and Dangme basically have the same vowel sounds, comprising of 7 orals and 5 nasalized vowels.
