Synopsis

As the title suggests, this collection explores some of the many facets of the language question as experienced by Africans today. This language question in Africa involves, in one way or another, the various languages used on the continent, namely the exoglossics languages, the indigenous languages, and pidginised languages like Pidgin English. It has to do with status planning, but also the structural forms of the languages considered. It has been examined in a multitude of scientific publications and in different fora, including the 2004 LAUD symposium whose main theme was "Empowerment through language", of which this book is an emanation and an extension.
