A Provisional Survey of Materials for the Study of Neglected Languages.
Blass, Birgit A., Comp.; And Others
The present list of basic tools of access for the study of the neglected languages is based on a file of materials collected at the Center for Applied Linguistics in fulfillment of a contract with the Office of Education. The survey contains over 2000 entries representing 382 languages and dialects, arranged according to languages and language groups within the following geographical areas: Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific, Eastern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Americas. The primary emphasis is on materials intended for use by the beginning adult learner whose native language is English, although materials of interest to the teacher, the specialist and the textbook writer have also been included. Items are arranged under language headings according to Teaching Materials, Readers, Grammars, and Dictionaries. Entries are annotated and contain, whenever possible, the following bibliographical information: author, title, place of publication, publisher, date, pagination, and accompanying tapes and records.
