Ewe Basic Course. Revised Version.
Warburton, Irene; And Others
The purpose of this beginning text in Ewe is to provide the student with an introduction to the structure of the Ewe language and "reasonable practice" in speaking. It is intended to be taught with the assistance of a native speaker of Ewe. Linguistic terminology is minimal. Suggested teaching time ranges from two semesters of class meetings of three hours each week to approximately 250 hours in an intensive course. The first section of the volume presents a brief description of the language background and some general linguistic features, followed by "pre-speech" phonology drills. The section on grammar presents the basic structures in dialogs glossed in English and accompanied by explanatory notes on the grammar and culture, paragraphs for comprehension practice, and comprehension and discussion questions. The final section comprises a glossary of vocabulary used in the text. (AMM)
