Abstract:

Professor B.R. Badejo is hereby being honoured via a festschrift, organized by his colleagues and students of the Department of Languages and Linguistics, the Department of English and indeed the Faculty of Arts, University of Maiduguri-Nigeria, to mark his unfathomable contribution to academic excellence. The theme of the festschrift is: Language, Communication and Society, which has been sub-divided into four sections for ease of reference: Language, Communication, Society and Other Languages. On Language, twenty-six articles on various aspects of linguistics feature. On Communication, twenty-two articles, cutting across various theories and techniques have been included. On Society, the thirty papers included generally cover various socio-cultural as well as political aspects of our society; while the section housing Other Languages contains eighteen articles, which include: eight on Hausa, four on Arabic, one on Kanuri, and two each on French and Fulfulde. It is pertinent to note that all contributions were subjected to a rigorous peer-review mechanism. Finally, we wish to state that this festschrift aims at significantly filling a lacuna in the field of Language, Communication and Society as well as encouraging future linguists to develop an interest in the field of language documentation and archiving. Non-linguists too, in related areas of specialization, stand to benefit immensely from the festschrift.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
