Title: Oracy and Literacy
Subtitle: Their Autonomy and Complementation in Language Communication
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Communication 07
Published: 2010
Publisher: Lincom GmbH

Editor: Petr Zima
Paperback: ISBN: 9783862880263 Pages: 320 Price: Europe EURO 73.80

This is the second volume presenting the results of a research project on
Continuity and Discontinuity in Communication granted by the Czech Science
Foundation (Grantová agentura České republiky) under Reg. No 405-07-0277.
While the first volume (published as volume 77 of LINCOM Studies in African
Linguistics) was oriented towards intra-disciplinary linguistic horizons of
Sprachbund and related areal features, this second volume is more focused
on communication as an inter-disciplinary problem.

It is in this light that the autonomy and mutual complementation of oracy
and literacy appears as a critical topic related to continuity and
discontinuity in communication. The rapidly spreading new communication
media bring with them broader, if not global, characteristics of usage,
acceptance and consequences. Hence it is not only possible, but desirable,
that our case studies on the interrelationship of oracy and literacy of the
Vietnamese/Czech language interference in varieties used by the Vietnamese
minority speakers and writers/readers in contemporary Czech Republic, are
presented here alongside our case studies of selected African languages
interfering with English and French in oracy and literacy of contemporary
West Africa.
