This volume contains 25 papers selected from the 36th Annual Conference on African Linguistics (ACAL 36), which was held at Georgia Southern University in 2005. The theme of the conference was “Shifting the Center of Africanism: Language, Economic Regionalism and Globalization,” which reflected Africa's struggle with its past as well as its gradual political maturation in a globalized world. Along with the plenary papers by Zaline Makini Roy-Campbell and Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, the papers in this volume are organized into sections on phonology, syntax, morpho-semantics, language in pedagogy, and language in social context.

Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings Project are published in library binding and on the web. We offer free web access to the complete proceedings in PDF format through our web site, www.lingref.com.
