Datapoint Ghanaian Pidgin English/Social variation: phonology

There are two main varieties of Ghanaian Pidgin English. Basilectal varieties are associated with the less educated sections of society, while more mesolectal/acrolectal forms are usually spoken by speakers who have at least progressed to the upper forms of secondary school. The phonology of the 'educated/student' variety is more influenced by Ghanaian (Standard) English, while the 'uneducated' variety is closer to the speakers' L1 varieties. The differences have not yet been studied systematically but are probably not too pronounced.
