This paper seeks to give a descriptive account of a vowel height feature agreement process in Ewe. The paper establishes that the height agreement process is neither height harmony nor metaphony. The paper further demonstrates the systematic difference between the coastal dialects and the inland dialects of Ewe in relation to the vowel height agreement process. The height agreement occurs in the cliticization of diminutive marker to nouns and adjectives as well as the cliticization of the 3rd person singular object pronominal to verbs.
This paper presents a systematic description of the 11 vowel phonemes (seven oral and four
nasal vowels) of Siwu, the language of the people of Akpafu and Lolobi through a
spectrographic analysis. The paper determines on scientific basis, the underlying acoustic
parameters that characterize the vowel system of Siwu. The result of the study defines the
acoustic vowel space of the language and shows that, the vowels are adequately dispersed
within the vowel space as predicted by the maximal dispersion theory. The result further
