Globalization and the Future of African Languages

edited by Francis Ogbokhare

Leading scholars of African languages address the many new ways that ICT have relevance to African languages for growth, development and sustenance while at the same time showing the imperative of facing the future of these languages. The scholars present the challenges of modernity, and suggest means and methods of copying these through the exploitation of resources. The fifteen contributions are organized in four main parts: ICT & Globalization, Sociolinguistics, Applied Linguistics, and Syntax & Phonology.
