Fante + Swedish = Fandish

Our Swedish Ghanaian child is soon one year old. Time flies when you are having fun! She has now uttered her first word of what we call “Fandish” – that is combination of her father’s Fante, one of the Ghanian Akan dialects/languages and her mother’s Swedish, a Germanic language from north of Europe.

What was her first combo word? I am proud to say my child is polite. I believe she pronounced a mixture of the Swedish and Fante words for thank you.

“tack” (Swedish) +

“meda woase” (Fante)

“ta’ssi” (Fandish)

Ta'ssi for the cereal!
