YORUBA, INTERMEDIATE TEXTS.
MCCLURE, H. DAVID; OYEWALE, JOHN O.
THIS COURSE IS BASED ON A SERIES OF BRIEF MONOLOGUES RECORDED BY A WESTERN-EDUCATED NATIVE SPEAKER OF YORUBA FROM THE OYO AREA. THE TAPES CONSTITUTE THE CENTRAL PART OF THE COURSE, WITH THE TEXT INTENDED AS SUPPLEMENTARY AND AUXILIARY MATERIAL. THE TEXT TOPICS WERE CHOSEN FOR THEIR SPECIAL RELEVANCE TO PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEERS WHO EXPECT TO USE YORUBA IN NIGERIA, PARTICULARLY IN THE LESS WESTERNIZED AREAS. THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IS INTENDED TO BE FACTUAL. A DISTINCTIVE FEATURE OF THE MATERIAL IS THE "OVERLAPPING" OF THE MONOLOGUES, WHICH APPEAR IN SEVERAL VARIATIONS ON EACH TOPIC. THE SPELLING AND ORTHOGRAPHY USED ARE FOR THE MOST PART STANDARD YORUBA WRITING. INSTRUCTIONS TO THE STUDENT FOR USING THE MATERIALS WITH AND WITHOUT A TUTOR ARE INCLUDED IN THE INTRODUCTION. SOME KNOWLEDGE OF YORUBA, INCLUDING KNOWLEDGE OF SUBJECT TONE RISE AND JUNCTURES, IS ASSUMED ON THE PART OF THE STUDENT. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C., 20402, FOR $1.25. (AM)
