Abstract:

Hausa is an African language originating in Niger and northern Nigeria and
spoken widely in West and Central Africa as a lingua franca. Charles Henry
Robinson (1861-1925) was the first student of the short-lived Hausa
Association, formed in 1891 to promote the study of the Hausa Language and
people. The Association sponsored Robinson to stay in northern Nigeria from
1894 to 1895 to gain more experience in the language. On his return
Robinson published an anthology of Hausa texts in 1896 and a Hausa grammar
in 1897 as well as this two-volume dictionary in 1899. His efforts
contributed greatly to Western knowledge of the language despite criticisms
of his relatively short experience of Hausa-speaking communities. Volume 1
is a Hausa-English dictionary. The version reissued here is the 1925 fourth
edition, for which the
Hausa-English dictionary was re-written and expanded.
