Nzema language

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nzema, also known as Nzima or Appolo, is a Central Tano language spoken by the Nzema people of southwestern Ghana and southeastern Ivory Coast.[3] It is partially intelligible with Jwira-Pepesa and is closely related to Baoulé.[4]

Although it is a Bia language, Nzema has had considerable influence from Akan languages, especially Twi and Fante.[5]
