Language, Literature and Culture in a Multilingual Society. Vol I
A Festschrift for Abubakar Rasheed
O.-M. Ndimele, M. Ahmad & H.M. Yakasai (eds.)
University of Port Harcourt; Bayero University; Bayero University 
This book is devoted to celebrate an eminent scholar of Linguistic Stylistics, Professor Abubakar Adamu Rasheed of the Department of English and Literary Studies, Bayero University, Kano, Nigeria, and the current Vice-Chancellor of the University. Being an expert in stylistics, discourse linguistics, systemic functional grammar and media English, Professor Rasheed has been very influential in high level research culminating in the development and preservation of Nigerian languages and the training of young academics. He has continued to provide quality academic and administrative leadership at his home-base university and beyond.
The book contains 77 papers meticulously selected from over 150 papers read at 24th Annual Conference of the Linguistic Association of Nigeria. The majority of the papers address the main theme of the conference, i.e. “Language, Literature and Culture in a Multilingual Society”. There are, however, a number of other papers addressing vital issues in outer circumstances which we deliberately included to cater for other interests beyond the main focus. The main reason for doing this is to enable the reader to have robust knowledge of the current state of research in linguistics, languages and literatures in Nigeria, and to add to the body of existing literature in these fields of learning. The papers here cover Language and Society, Language Teaching and Learning, Language Engineering, Literatures and Cultures, Stylistics and Gender Studies, Formal Linguistics and many more. The book can be read by any linguist of whatever theoretical orientation.
