Book Information

   

Title: Vernacular Palaver
Subtitle: Imaginations of the Local and Non-native Languages in West Africa
Written By: Moradewun Adejunmobi
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=1853597724
Series Title: Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
Description:

Vernacular Palaver highlights the continuing appeal of local identities for participants in social networks where communication occurs in languages that are not mother tongues. Using examples from video film, popular literature, religious activity and educational practice in West Africa, it demonstrates the importance of notions of localness and locality for speakers of non-native languages, despite the growing prominence of global languages in their lives.
