Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Ekoid Bantu Languages of Ogoja, Eastern Nigeria: Part 1, Introduction, Phonology and Comparative Vocabulary
Written By: David W. Crabb

Dr Crabb's 1965 study of the Ekoid Bantu languages of Ogoja examines these
related languages as a basis of comparative historical research. He has chosen
fourteen of these Ekoid languages as representative of a number of languages
in the north-west area of Nigeria bordering on the Bantu language area, whose
status as Bantu languages has been open to question. This study is based on
extensive field work and presents comparatively the phonologies and selected
vocabularies of the languages.
