Literary Research: The Arts in Language, Communication, Culture and Society
 
Jidda Hassan Juma’a (ed.)
University of Maiduguri
 
This book is a research contribution from scholars in the area of Arts and Humanities. It contains articles on languages, linguistics, communication, culture and society. On languages and linguistics aspects the book looks at the fate of languages susceptible to endangerment due to major languages encroachment on their vocabulary and the attitudes of the speakers of the endangered languages.
 
The interaction between local Nigerian languages with modern European languages such as English and French occupy considerable space. In the area of communication researchers looked at the relevance of artistic designs, theatre and theories, in conveying messages that are educative and in the end transforming society’s mindset. On the cultural aspects scholars have extensively discussed the traditional barriers often created by shortsighted vision to religion, intellectualism and society that resulted into indecent interaction between the subjects.
 
On the research study in society the scholars have in more details discussed the dual function of society, where the same can be used in the process of destruction and reconstruction. Thus, on the use of drama, they were able to address social vices and the gradually returning peace to insurgent zones of Niger-Delta and Boko Haram in Northeast Nigeria.
