"Language, Literature and Discourse" explores linguistic and literary
discourses which constitute the research foci of Professor Lekan Oyeleye,
former Dean of Arts and former Head, Department of English, University of
Ibadan, Nigeria. With relevant data, the authors, who are experienced
scholars from African tertiary institutions and who have impacted
positively on the pedagogical and research terrains in Africa, carry out
in-depth analyses of language use in natural and mediated genres from
syntactic, lexico-semantic, discourse, stylistic, pragmatic, applied
linguistic and literary perspectives. The chapters coherently present the
nexus of language and discourse as a veritable site for the interrogation
of issues and factors that have bearings on effective human interactions
and transactions.

The text is an invaluable resource material for teachers of English as a
second language and some other languages, at the tertiary level, and
researchers in language and literature all over the world.
