Datapoint Ghanaian Pidgin English/Ongoing creolization of pidgins

In comparison to the pidgins in Nigeria or Cameroon, the acquisition of Ghanaian Pidgin English as a first language is still a very marginal phenomenon and only just about starting. A few (priviledged) Ghanaian children learn the Student Pidgin variety at home from their fathers who went to secondary school/university. All of these children acquire at least one other language at the same time (an African language or, more rarely, English).
