The peopling of southern Ghana: a linguistic viewpoint

Migration history of the Volta-Comoe-speaking groups west of the Volta, reconstructed by applying the historical linguistic classification. The most likely homeland for proto-Volta-Comoe is present-day Brong-Ahafo. From this area, first Ono went southwest and Guang went east, then Bia went south, and finally Akan went south except for what became the Brong dialect, which stayed put. One may assume, until contrary evidence is presented, that the dispersal was a consequence of the movements of the people who introduced the language into the country as they arrived. It is impossible, however, to be certain that no other language was ever spoken in any part of the area. Map.
