This volume is a selection of papers prepared for a conference on sociolinguistically oriented language surveys organized by the Center for Applied Linguistics and held in New York in September 1971. The purpose of the conference was to review the role and function of such language surveys in the light of surveys conducted in recent years. The selection is intended to give a general picture of such surveys to the layman and to reflect the aims of the conference. The papers deal with scope, problems, uses, organization, and techniques of surveys, and descriptions of particular surveys, and are mostly related to the Eastern Africa Survey. The authors of these selections are: Charles A. Ferguson, Ashok R. Kelkar, J. Donald Bowen, Edgar C. Polome, Sirarpi Ohannessian, Gilbert Ansre, Probodh B. Pandit, William D. Reyburn, Bonifacio P. Sibayan, Clifford H. Prator, Mervyn C. Alleyne, M.L. Bender, R.L. Cooper and Joshua A. Fishman. (Author/AM)

Swahili language handbook by Edgar C Polomé( Book )

14 editions published between 1967 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to the structure and background of the swahili language was written for the non-specialist. Although the linguistic terminology used in the description of the language assumes the reader has had some training in linguistics, this handbook provides basic linguistic and sociolinguistic information for students of african culture and intermediate or advanced swahili language students as well as for linguists. In an introduction to the present language situation, this handbook explains the distribution and use of swahili as a lingua franca, as a pidgin, and as a mother language and explains present usage through a brief history of the language. Dialects of swahili are discussed and related languages mentioned when relevant to swahili structure. Although the author places greatest emphasis on the structure of the language (phonology, morphology, derivation, inflection, complex structures, syntax, and vocabulary), he includes chapters on the writing system and swahili literature. Of special interest to language teachers is a chapter examining specific points of contrast between swahili and english. This handbook is also available for $4.50 from the office of information and publications, center for applied linguistics, 1717 massachusetts ave., N.W., washington, D.C., 20036. (jd)
