Love Notes

An Anthology of African and East European Indigenous Languages

edited by Tendai Rinos Mwanaka

Africa as the cradle of human civilizations, has over 2000 languages, not to talk of distinct dialects, or part languages, so it's important that language and social science practitioners in Africa do the best they can to preserve the languages. Language is the heartbeat of the culture of a people, and in language we pass off, or down contain relevant survival information. In language we collect and create a sense of identity. If you are wondering why East Europe; it is one of the regions of the world that still communicates in indigenous languages; East Europe kept to its identity and didn't take to the dominant languages like English, French, Spanish etc... in Love Notes: Everything is Love, we have work from 36 contributors (including translators) in several languages including among others Russian, Croatian, Macedonian, Greek, Bulgarian, Romanian, Turkish, Idoma from Nigeria, Igbo from Nigeria, Shona from Zimbabwe, Bemba from Zambia, Tonga from Zambia, Shingazidja dialect of Shikomori language of The Comoros, Chewa from Malawi etc... from writers residing in among others, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Croatia, Zimbabwe, North Macedonia, Macedonia, Turkey, Malawi, Zambia, Kenya,, Nigeria, and The Comoros, writing around Love.
