BEGINNING YORUBA.
AREMU, J. OMOTOSO; WOLFF, HANS
BASED ON THE OYO-IBADAN DIALECT OF YORUBA, THIS COURSE CONTAINS SIX UNITS OF DRILL EXERCISES WHICH STRESS PRONUNCIATION (ESPECIALLY TONE CONTROL), BASIC SYNTAX, VERB STRUCTURE, AND SOME TYPES OF CLAUSES AND SENTENCES. DESIGNED FOR USE WITH A YORUBA-SPEAKING INFORMANT, THE APPROACH IS ENTIRELY ORAL, SO THAT THE STUDENT WILL POSSESS A COMMAND OF THE LANGUAGE SUFFICIENT FOR EVERYDAY CONVERSATION. THE ORTHOGRAPHY USED IN THE DRILLS REFLECTS THE PHONEMIC STRUCTURE OF YORUBA AND SHOWS TONE IN A THREE-LEVEL SYSTEM. A FEW PAGES ARE DEVOTED TO ACQUAINTING THE STUDENT WITH STANDARD YORUBA ORTHOGRAPHY, WHICH IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE PRACTICAL VARIETY USED IN THE TEXT. BOOKS IN MULTILITH FORM TO TEACHERS FOR EXAMINATION, AND INFORMATION ON ACCOMPANYING TAPE RECORDINGS ARE AVAILABLE FROM DR. CHARLES C. HUGHES, DIRECTOR, AFRICAN STUDIES CENTER, MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY, EAST LANSING, MICHIGAN, 48823. (FB)
