University of Buea Cameroon
 
This volume groups 17 contributions into two sections: theoretical and applied linguistics Part one describe focus, topic and indirect questions, adverbial/PP and wh-fronting in the Wandala; information structures within a sentence on the left periphery in Kwandja; syntactic derivation of fragmentary utterances within the ellipsis approach in Bassa; definiteness/indefiniteness in Limbum; tense and time frame in Ghomala’; phonological processes triggered in Kejom verb roots by verbal extensions; Oban nominal prefix tone as underlyingly toneless; the status of adjectives in Baba 1 and the complexity of tone in Aghem, Bu, Isu, Weh and Zoa. Part two discusses the teaching of Cameroon mother tongues and cultures in the preschool; corpus linguistics in relation to English language research and pedagogy; political speeches and their linguistic features; gender in greetings in Yoruba-ondo; language use and dressing within a secret society, Ekpe, Cameroon; the desperate situation of minority indigenous languages in urban settings and how new forms of communication come about; literacy and literacy activities in Cameroon, attitudes and linguistic representations of literacy facilitators and finally the interaction between stakeholders of the invisible world of spirits, ancestors, and individuals who allegedly know how to interact with them.
