Beschreibung:

Provides the first encyclopaedic volume of the languages of southern Africa
Chapter 1. Introduction: Linguistic and Cultural Imperialism, Alas; Tomasz Kamusella & Finex Ndhlovu
This book is the first to offer an interdisciplinary and comprehensive reference work on the often-marginalised languages of southern Africa. The authors analyse a range of different concepts and questions, including language and sociality, social and political history, multilingual government, and educational policies. In doing so, they present significant original research, ensuring that the work will remain a key reference point for the subject. This ambitious and wide-ranging edited collection will appeal to students and scholars of southern African languages, sociolinguistics, history and politics.
