This book is the first general introduction to African languages and
linguistics to be published in English. It covers the four major
language groupings (Niger-Congo, Nilo-Saharan, Afroasiatic and
Khoisan), the core areas of modern theoretical linguistics (phonology,
morphology, syntax), typology, sociolinguistics, comparative
linguistics, and language, history and society. Basic concepts and
terminology are explained for undergraduates and nonspecialist
readers, but each chapter also provides an overview of the state of
the art in its field, and as such will be referred to by more advanced
students and general linguists.
