Abstract:

This edited volume highlights various aspects of a hitherto neglected
research topic. During the relatively short period of German colonialism
(1884-1918/20) in Africa, China and Oceania, literally hundreds of texts were
produced which treat of the indigenous languages of the German colonial
empire. Many of these texts have never appeared in print. The contributions
are indicative of the wealth of interesting insights (the historiography of)
linguistics will gain from a thorough-going (re-)appraisal of the linguistic efforts
of missionaries, state employees, military personnel, merchants, settlers,
travelers and other individuals during the German colonial rule (and the
revanchist inter-war period).

The volume marks the beginnings of a new collaborative research program,
viz. Colonial and Postcolonial Linguistics. The scholarly articles assembled in
this volume discuss various topics related to languages such as Chamorro,
Chuuk, Ewe, Ewondo, Kanuri, Khoekowap, Nauruan, Weskos. The role of
German in Kiautschou is focused upon, too. The colonialist ideology is traced
in the typical examples used in grammar books of the indigenous languages
in the African colonies of imperial Germany. The volume addresses a
readership with an interest in the history of descriptive linguistics and field-
linguistics, language typology, and language ideology.
