Language, Literature & Communication in a Dynamic World. Vol I
 
A Festschrift for Chinyere Ohiri-Aniche
 
Ozo-mekuri Ndimele (ed.)
University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria
 
This book is devoted to honour Professor (Mrs.) Chinyere Ohiri-Aniche – a living legend in the study of linguistics, language, curriculum development in Nigeria. This is the first time a female Nigerian linguist is honoured in this special way, which shows how Professor (Mrs.) Ohiri-Aniche is cherished by her contemporaries and her students (both past and present).
 
The book contains sixty-two (62) papers addressing various aspects of Nigerian linguistics, literatures, cultures and communications generally. The first set of papers addressed the main theme of this project. We have also included a number of other papers addressing related phenomena to the theme of the book. The main reason for doing this is not just to allow a good number of other interesting papers a chance to be featured, but to cater for other interests of readers beyond the theme of the book.
 
The subject-matters covered in this book, include sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, literature, and gender studies in Nigeria.
The book is a must read for any person interested to know what progress has been made in the study of linguistics, languages, literatures and cultures in Nigeria.
