Abstract:

This advanced historical linguistics course book deals with the historical
and comparative study of African languages. The first part functions as an
elementary introduction to the comparative method, involving the
establishment of lexical and grammatical cognates, the reconstruction of
their historical development, techniques for the subclassification of
related languages, and the use of language-internal evidence, more
specifically the application of internal reconstruction. Part II addresses
language contact phenomena and the status of language in a wider,
cultural-historical and ecological context. Part III deals with the
relationship between comparative linguistics and other disciplines. In this
rich course book, the author presents valuable views on a number of issues
in the comparative study of African languages, more specifically concerning
genetic diversity on the African continent, the status of pidginised and
creolised languages, language mixing, and grammaticalisation.
