Globalisation and African Languages

Globalisation and African Languages intends to link African language studies to the concept of 'globalisation'. However, even in the linguistic sense often conflicting and overlapping particularistic interests exist which have a constructive as well as destructive potential. Hence, the contributions to this volume by well-known linguists aim at portraying different aspects/areas of research, i.e. (a) LANGUAGE USE AND ATTITUDES, addressing some of the burning issues in sociolinguistic research; (b) LANGUAGE POLICY AND EDUCATION, investigating the educational domain, and (c) LANGUAGE DESCRIPTION AND CLASSIFICATION demonstrating which parts of different language systems are affected through contact under historical and modern conditions.
Katrin Bromber researches at the Centre for Modern Oriental Studies, Berlin, Germany. Birgit Smieja is Assistant Professor at the University Koblenz-Landau, Germany.
