READINGS IN SANGO. VOLUME II, BASIC COURSE IN SANGO.
SAMARIN, WILLIAM J.
INCLUDED IN THIS BOOK OF SANGO READINGS ARE 15 SHORT TEXTS SELECTED FROM A LARGE COLLECTION OF TAPE RECORDINGS MADE FOR THE AUTHOR'S SANGO GRAMMAR AND DICTIONARY PROJECT (SEE ED 003 925 AND ED 010 346). THE TEXTS WERE CHOSEN ON THE BASIS OF THE QUALITY OF THE RECORDING, THE CONTENT AND LENGTH OF THE TEXT, AND ITS SUITABILITY FOR THE LANGUAGE LEARNER. IT IS INTENDED THAT THESE READINGS BE USED WITH "VOLUME I, BASIC COURSE IN SANGO," AL 001 161, TO INCREASE THE STUDENT'S FAMILIARITY WITH GRAMMAR, VOCABULARY, AND SYNTAX. EACH READING IS PRESENTED FIRST IN REGULARIZED TRANSCRIPTION AND THEN IN ENGLISH TRANSLATION. GRAMMAR AND USAGE EXPLANATIONS FOLLOW EACH TEXT TO CALL THE STUDENT'S ATTENTION TO IMPORTANT POINTS AND TO EXPLAIN IRREGULARITIES. SHORT "QUESTION" AND "MODEL SENTENCE" SECTIONS PROVIDE DRILLS ON THE MATERIAL IN THE READING. THESE READINGS WERE TAKEN FROM EXTEMPORANEOUS RECORDINGS MADE BY CENTRAL AFRICAN SPEAKERS OF SANGO AND ARE PRIMARILY FOLKTALES, PERSONAL NARRATIVES, AND THE DESCRIPTION OF LOCAL CUSTOMS. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON THE AVAILABILITY OF THIS TEXT AND CORRESPONDING TAPE RECORDINGS, CONTACT THE AUTHOR AT GRACE COLLEGE, P.O. BOX 397, WINONA LAKE, INDIANA 46590. (JD)
