A Resource Handbook for African Languages. A Listing of the Institutional, Human, and Material Resources for the Teaching and Learning of the Eighty-Two Highest Priority African Languages.
Dwyer, David J., Comp.
A handbook and directory of resources for teaching and learning the 82 African languages selected as the highest priority for course offerings in the United States consists primarily of profiles for each language. Each profile contains information on the language's classification, distribution, number of speakers, usage status, dialects, orthographic status, and requirements for learning materials, and listings of all individuals and institutions carrying out work in some way pertinent to the teaching of the language. Specialist evaluations of the materials and information on material availability are also included. Appendixes include lists of the languages by priority category, questionnaires used in compiling the guide, a bibliography, individual and institutional addresses, and country-language and language-country indexes.
