Description

Routledge is proud to be re-issuing this landmark series in association with the International African Institute. The series, originally published between 1930 and 1987, provides an invaluable resource for the study of African languages and for critically on reflecting the history of the field. A number of the volumes remain highly relevant today, while others provide a unique snapshot of approaches and findings at the time of their publication.

The volumes are supplemented with maps, which will be available to view on https://www.routledge.com/ or available as pdfs from the publishers.

Reviews

'The reissue provides a valuable resource for the study of African languages and for critically reflecting on the history of the field….The reissues will make this body of work widely available and contribute to the development and expansion of African linguistics and related disciplines.' Lutz Marten, Professor of General and African Linguistics, SOAS, University of London

'These volumes are classics and presently hard to find. They are important not just as documentation, but as influencing

orthographies and language identifications, educational materials in African schools. ' Judith Irvine, Professor of Linguistic Anthropology, University of Michigan
