Abstract:

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

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