Paul Newman’s Online Bibliography of Chadic and Hausa Linguistics

The latest edition of Paul Newman‘s Chadic-Hausa Bibliography (2013) is now up and available for open use at the IU [Indiana University] ScholarWorks repository. The url is:  https://scholarworks.iu.edu/dspace/handle/2022/16600.  This Version02 is a corrected and expanded version of the bibliography that was posted early in 2012 on the DEVA site at the University of Bayreuth.

The Online Bibliography of Chadic and Hausa Linguistics (OBCHL) is an updated, expanded, and corrected edition of the bibliography published some fifteen years ago by Rüdiger Köppe Verlag (Newman 1996). That bibliography was built on valuable earlier works including Hair (1967), Newman (1971), Baldi (1977), R. M. Newman (1979), Awde (1988), and Barreteau (1993). The ensuing years have witnessed an outpouring of new publications on Chadic and Hausa, written by scholars from around the globe, thereby creating the need for a new, up-to-date bibliography.

The bibliography currently contains over 2700 main entries, dating from 1790 to 2012. A special feature, continued from the earlier printed volume, is the inclusion of book reviews along with the entry for the book in question. The bibliography is limited to works on languages and linguistics. It does not include publications concerned primarily with literature and literary analysis.
