Ghanaian English

Ghana is a coastal West African country with a population of 19 million. The number of English speakers has increased steadily from a mere fifth of Ghanaians aged 15+ in 1962 to two thirds at the turn of the millennium, but its quality varies widely, from native-like fluency to broken varieties. There is yet no substantial native speaker community of English. Owing to its colonial past, GhE is oriented towards BrE.
