What are some of the cute names you use to call your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife? Sweetheart? Darling? Honey? Babe? Sweetie pie? These are all nice names that could make your partner feel special.
In today’s lesson, you’ll learn about some cute names in Twi that you can use to call your better half.
In the embedded video lesson below, I go beyond a mere pronunciation run; I break down some of the terms and give you their respective constituent meanings. This, I believe, would help you to identify and make meaning of different units when you come by them in different words, or in isolation.
