!Kung as a Linguistic Construct.
Miller-Ockhuizen, Amanda; Sands, Bonny E.
Language & Communication, v19 n4 p401-13 Oct 1999
Argues that linguists have ignored diversity within the northern Khoesan (NK) group of languages of Southern Africa and this has had serious repercussions both for speakers of these languages and for linguistic theory. The variation that appears within NK has been ignored in part because a single variety has been misunderstood as being the !Kung language, or prototypical NK language. (Author/VWL)
