A Bibliography of African Languages and Linguistics.
Murphy, John D., Comp.; Goff, Harry, Comp.
The present bibliography of African languages and linguistics includes not only works relating to the "Negro-African" languages, but also those dealing with the African varieties of Arabic, the Hamitic languages, Malagasy, Afrikaans, and various Creoles. (The greater part of the entries relate to the indigenous languages of the African continent south of the Sahara.) The linguistic classification employed is that represented in the several African-language taxonomies published by the International African Institute. Included are only works dealing specifically or primarily with language: titles exclusively or chiefly anthropological or ethnographic in character are strictly excluded. Many of the titles are extremely rare; the existence of reprints is noted in cases where these were available at the date of publication. Languages and dialects, and authors/compilers are indexed in the appendix. (AMM)
