Abstract:

This book addresses issues bordering on the long-standing co-existence of
English and Nigerian languages. For about two centuries, English and
Nigerian languages have co-existed and played complementary roles in
meeting the communicative and pragmatic needs of the people.

The co-existence of English and Nigerian languages offers a prolific field
of enquiry especially in matters relating to pedagogy, language attitude,
language shift, language endangerment etc. The eighteen-chapter book
therefore, carefully handles topics such as the English language in the
outer circle, the problem of language and implications for national
integration, the English language and the colonization of African
languages, language attitude, globalization and the survival of Nigerian
heritage, the nativization of English in Nigeria, the English Language in
Nigerian Universities etc.

The authors generally treat the implications of the co-existence of English
and Nigerian languages. As pointed out in the work, English in Nigeria
could be said to be a blessing as it opens up the country to the gains of
globalization. On the other hand, the overwhelming positive attitude to
English in Nigeria is a serious threat to the survival and growth of
indigenous languages and the Nigerian cultural heritage.
