KU Linguistics is pleased to announce the publication of Studies in Ibibio Grammar (Duncan 2015).

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

KU Linguistics is pleased to announce the publication of Studies in Ibibio Grammar (Duncan 2015).  The volume, weighing in at 666 pages, is the second in the “KU Field Methods in Linguistic Description” Series. Each volume in the series, which is the brainchild of Linguistics graduate student Philip Duncan, contains field notes, handouts, squibs, and papers from the language in the Field Methods course.  The contents of the volume all represent original research and the contributors to the volume include both graduate and undergraduate students.  For most of the students, this is their first published work.  The current volume grew out of the Field Methods course in Spring 2014, in which the class worked on Ibibio, a Niger-Congo, Lower Cross language spoken in southeastern Nigeria.  While there is previous linguistic work on Ibibio, this volume, to our knowledge, is the largest single collection of data and analysis ever produced on the language.  Students in the course went on to present some of this work at conferences such as the Annual Conference on African Linguistics (ACAL) and the Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA).  The first volume in the series, Cocuilotlatzala Mixtec: Preliminary observations and grammatical analyses (Duncan 2012), represents the first descriptions of a previously undocumented Mixtecan language.  Both volumes are available at the Watson Library at KU.
