    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'The book should interest Bantuists, Africanists, dialectologists, phonologists and even those who work in the rarified air of general linguistic theory. At an Africanist level the reaction lies somewhere between high praise and wild enthusiasm. At more general theoretical levels the book is at least interesting and probably somewhat controversial … This is, I think, a superb book, valuable on many levels.' American Anthropologist
