Lesson 38: Twi Question Words | Twi Grammar

UPDATE: We have a new YouTube channel. Please CLICK HERE to visit and subscribe to it for video lessons.

We listed a number of Twi grammar terms in our last lesson, lesson 37 of the Twi grammar course.

Today’s lesson focuses on Question Words in Twi. We are listing the various words used to ask questions in Twi. It is worth noting that we are listing these question-asking words from a more general perspective. If you are looking to read about, for instance, Twi interrogative pronouns, you may click here.

This should be a very short lesson; I hope it proves useful.
