Susu Basic Course. Final Report.
Sangster, Linda; Faber, Emmanuel
The introductory section of this basic course in Susu presents the phonology of the language--vowels, consonants, intonation, vowel contractions and conditioning, and tones. Examples of equivalent or similar sounds in English and French are provided, as well as listening and transcribing exercises. (The material is designed to be used with a native speaker teacher or informant.) The general section of the text presents the basic features of the language in the form of short dialogs, followed by grammatical notes and various types of exercises (question-answer, appropriate response, fill-in-the-blanks, and translation). The final section is a Susu/English/French vocabulary listing. All Susu appears in both English and French throughout the text. Linguistic terminology is minimal. (AMM)
