About the Language:
The language has what is called vowel harmony. This means that in the language all vowels must belong to the same single class and you do not have interchanging vowels. There are 10 vowels in total which are divided into 2 sets of 5. The language is considered a tonal language and relies heavily on the tone of different vowels, consonants, and words. There is one word in Acholi that has over 14 different pronunciations for the same word. This can become confusing for some to understand which word is meant. Learning the language can be difficult due to the fact that it is tonal and carries many different pronunciations for one single word.
The song, Song of Lawino, which is very popular in African literature, was written in Acholi.
