Their Autonomy and Complementation in Language Communication

Petr Zima, Editor
Radovan Síbrt and Vladimír Tax, Assistant Editors in cooperation with Thomas Bearth, Norbert Cyffer, Petr Komers, Jitka Slezáková, Anne Storch

This is the second volume presenting the results of a research project on Continuity and Discontinuity in Communication granted by the Czech Science Foundation (Grantová agentura České republiky) under Reg. No 405-07-0277. While the first volume (published as volume 77 of LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics) was oriented towards intra-disciplinary linguistic horizons of Sprachbund and related areal features, this second volume is more focused on communication as an inter-disciplinary problem.

It is in this light that the autonomy and mutual complementation of oracy and literacy appears as a critical topic related to continuity and discontinuity in communication. The rapidly spreading new communication media bring with them broader, if not global, characteristics of usage, acceptance and consequences. Hence it is not only possible, but desirable, that our case studies on the interrelationship of oracy and literacy of the Vietnamese/Czech language interference in varieties used by the Vietnamese minority speakers and writers/readers in contemporary Czech Republic, are presented here alongside our case studies of selected African languages interfering with English and French in oracy and literacy of contemporary West Africa.
