Authors  Boafo, Ebenezer

Abstract 

This is a summary report on a sociolinguistic survey of the Sehwi language of Ghana. The three questions of the survey were: (a) Is there a need for language development, particularly Scripture translation in Sehwi? (b) If there is a definite need, is there one variety of Sehwi which should be used as the reference dialect? and (c) if there is a definite need, what type of program should be instituted?
