Untitled[edit]

The adjective derived from "Ghana" is "Ghanaian" and not "Ghanian." Hence "Ghanian Sign Language" should be "Ghanaian Sign Language."

This has been fixed; I don't know when. AlbertBickford (talk) 18:17, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

spaken language??[edit]

What spoken language is used by the hearing villagers?? Is it Twi or some other Akan language? Which one?--Sonjaaa 18:22, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

The article now identifies the language as Akan. AlbertBickford (talk) 18:16, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Name[edit]

How do I show my name in this language? --Jay Turner (talk · contribs) 20:23, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Just wave goodbye. — mark 12:51, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Why do I think your lying? --Jay Turner (talk · contribs) 16:53, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Maybe because I'm giving a meaningless answer to a meaningless question? AdaSL is a village sign language of Ghana. There is no way to transform a spoken/written name into AdaSL, except perhaps by fingerspelling, which would not really be AdaSL anyway. — mark 08:34, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Population claims Comment[edit]

Today I noticed a very implausible claim in the top section, and removed it, because there was no citation to support it: "In the past, this percentage is thought to have been as high as 60%." In the published literature I've read about this language, the highest percentage I've ever seen claimed is 11%, back in the 1960s, before the chief instituted a eugenics policy that forbade Deaf people to marry each other. The current edition of Ethnologue cites figures that amount to 1.1%, so I changed that also. (The information that was there before was presumably from an earlier edition of Ethnologue.)

Looking at it again, none of the information cited from Ethnologue was cited correctly. It doesn't seem like Ethnologue has anything to add that isn't in the papers by Nyst and others, so I just removed those citations, rather than reporting what Ethnologue says just for the sake of doing so.
