Synopsis

This book provides a timely review of the study and use of English in Africa. It has afforded distinguished language and literature teachers across Africa an opportunity to reflect on the current status of the language in the humanities, education and society on the continent. The presentations in the book touch on some of the most intractable and most debated issues in language and literature in Africa, including English as a dialect, the language question in literature and the penetration of English into French speaking African countries. The book is indeed a unique contribution to the debate on English in Africa and readers will find the arguments in the papers in it robust and refreshing.
