Title: Comparative Vocabularies of Bushman Languages
Written By: D. F. Bleek
Description:

Originally published in 1929, as part of a series of short studies on South
African tribes by the School of African Life and Languages at the
University of Cape Town, this book provides a comparative analysis of the
vocabularies used amongst various Bushmen tribes. Through linguistic
analysis, a detailed understanding of Bushmen society is developed,
emphasising both the commonalities and distinctions between different
tribes. A generous introduction is included, together with a map detailing
the coverage of each language. This is a highly informative volume that
will be of value to anyone with an interest in anthropology, linguistics,
and hunter-gatherer societies.
