Product Description

This book succeeds outstandingly in achieving the two-fold goal of presenting a mosaic of some key areas of contemporary research in studies on African languages, linguistics and literature, and to present through this collection of research a fitting dedication to Professor Herman Batibo. He is a foremost scholar of African languages and linguistics, whose academic work especially in the fields of sociolinguistics, language endangerment and morphophonology, spanning over the past five decades, had a definitive impact and leading influence in these fields, and will undoubtedly do so still for much future research. The contributions in this volume are all written by respected scholars in the fields of African linguistics, including sociolinguistics, morphophonology, morphosyntax, African languages literature, and Swahili studies, all of which represent a perspective of prominent issues in current research, study and teaching of African languages. The contributions in this book together comprise an important resource for scholars and students of African languages, in addition to a wider readership audience who have an interest in African languages scholarship and its reflections on African societies today.
