CHINYANJA BASIC COURSE.
STEVICK, EARL W.; AND OTHERS
THIS LANGUAGE COURSE IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE THE LINGUISTICALLY ORIENTED STUDENT WITH THE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF CHINYANJA (ALSO COMMONLY REFERRED TO WITHOUT THE "CHI" PREFIX AS "NYANJA"). THE PRINCIPLE LANGUAGE OF MALAWI, CHINYANJA IS ALSO SPOKEN BY LARGE NUMBERS OF MALAWIANS IN NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES. THE COURSE IS BASED ON A SET OF DIALOGS DEVELOPED FROM IMPROMPTU CONVERSATIONS RECORDED BY TWO OF THE MALAWIAN AUTHORS. INTENDED TO BE INTRODUCED ORALLY, THESE DIALOGS ARE GLOSSED IN ENGLISH AND CONTAIN THE SPECIAL STRUCTURE POINTS OF EACH UNIT. THEY ARE FOLLOWED BY EXPLANATORY NOTES AND EXERCISES AND, IN EARLIER LESSONS, BY SHORT "AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL" QUESTION AND ANSWER SECTIONS. LATER UNITS ARE LONGER, WITH MORE ATTENTION GIVEN TO THE GRAMMATICAL DEVICES OF THE LANGUAGE. EMPHASIS THROUGHOUT IS ON MASTERY OF THE DIALOGS. INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TEACHER ARE INCLUDED IN THE INTRODUCTION. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402, FOR $1.75. (AMM)
