List of Twi Synonyms (Nkyerɛase Korɔ)

UPDATE: We have a new YouTube channel. Please CLICK HERE to visit and subscribe to it for video lessons.

In the lesson on Twi Antonyms, I advised that you try to find antonyms and synonyms of each new Twi word you learn. Doing so, I believe, will help you expand your vocabulary, consequently helping you to speed up your learning and mastering of the language.

To help you with that, I’m following the lesson on Twi antonyms with one on synonyms. If you have more synonyms which haven’t been included in the list, please contribute by leaving them in the comments section below the post.
