Subject: Makua Language

A friend of mine is currently studying the Bantu language Makua
(sometimes spelled Makhua) with the aim of translating the Bible into
Has anybody done any research on this language. If so what are
available and how can it be obtained? I found referenced to work done
by Susan U Stucky, but it does not say if this is the Hawaiin or
African Makua language.
Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!. My friend is located in the
heart of Mozambique and only way to reach him is via e-mail on
satelite or radio link. I would therefore appreciate electronic
formats, but hard copies that can be processed are also welcome

Dear Linguists,
I am sending this question on behalf of a colleague who is not a member of
this list.
Does anyone know of any reference where Basil Bernstein expands on his
concept of the 'ideology of tenses' in education? Any information on the
topic will be greatly appreciated.
Please send responses to the e-mail address below:
