G. points out that Harman (1931) had noticed that speakers of English in Ghana made no distinction between the English vowel sounds /i/ and /iː/. In his attempt to make his African students speak better English, Harman compares the Received Pronunciation (RP) phonemes with Twi and Yoruba phonemes and recommends that the students learn to produce the RP sounds. Here Harman’s intention was more prescriptive than descriptive. In another study reported in Koranteng (2006), Schachter (1962) also points out similarities he observes between Twi and RP, but unlike Harman, he suggests that his students use Twi substitutes in place of the English sounds that they are unable to make.
