Languages of Sub-Saharan Africa. A Survey of Materials for the Study of the Uncommonly Taught Languages.
Johnson, Dora E.; And Others
This is an annotated bibliography of basic tools of access for the study of the uncommonly taught languages of Sub-Saharan Africa. It is one of eight fascicles which constitute a revision of "A Provisional Survey of Materials for the Study of the Neglected Languages" (CAL 1969). The emphasis is on materials for the adult learner whose native language is English. Languages are grouped according to the following classifications: Germanic; Languages of Ethiopia and Somalia; Languages of West Africa; Bantu Languages; Khoisan; Languages of Interior Africa; and Malayo-Polynesian. Under each language heading, the items are arranged as follows: (1) teaching materials; (2) readers; (3) grammars; and (4) dictionaries. Annotations are descriptive rather than critical. Wherever possible each entry contains the following bibliographical information: author, title, place of publication, date and pagination. Reprints have been noted, and accompanying tapes and records listed where known. (Author/AMH)
