First published in 1881, this is a detailed dictionary of Tshi, the language prevalent in the Cold Cast countries between the rivers Asini and Tanno in the west and the Volts in the east. The chief speakers of Tshi are the Ashanti, Fanti, Akim and Aquapem. This volume will be of considerable utility to those with an interest in the language and culture of this region, and it is not to be missed by collectors. Contents include: 'General Remarks', 'Grammatical Specialities', 'Sounds and Letters', 'Vowels', 'Consonants', 'Formation of Words', 'Disyllables', 'Verb Stems', Affixes and Nouns', 'Names of Places, Languages, Dialects', 'References to Books or Persons', 'Books of the Bible', 'Various Marks or Signs', 'Publications in Tshi', etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with the original text and images.
