The Ewe people inhabit the Volta Region of Ghana and the southern halves of Togo and Benin in West Africa. The Ewe Canadian Cultural Organization of Ontario (ECCOO) a non-profit organization was founded in 1993 and incorporated in August of 1994.
Ewe is a tribal language spoken by the Ewe tribes with about 3 million speakers in Ghana, Togo and Benin.
The Ewe is a tonal language with four tones; a rising tone marked by an accute (é), a falling tone marked by a grave accent (è), a falling-rising tone marked by a caron accent (?) and a rising-falling accent marked by circumflex accent (ê). However, the tones are not always marked.
Although the Ewe has been described as a single language group, there are considerable dialectic variations. Some of these dialects are mutually understood, but sometimes with difficulty.
