Our dear colleague, Prof. em. Dr. Herrmann Jungraithmayr, born May 7th, 1931, has just turned 85. On this occasion, I have compiled a list of his publications (excluding book reviews written by him) which I have uploaded here. I have prepared it in three different formats:
I am sure there will be mistakes or omissions, so I will be grateful to receive your corrections.

Paul Newman‘s Comprehensive Bibliography of Chadic and Hausa Linguistics, 3rd edition (Bloomington: IU ScholarWorks, 2015) is now posted online and available for use. This open access work can be found at <http://hdl.handle.net/2022/20576>.
This work is a corrected and greatly expanded version of the bibliography that was published initially in 2012 and then again in 2013. A significant improvement in the current edition is the addition of an index of authors of book reviews (reviews still being included together with the books being reviewed).

In the past, the printed version of Chadic Newsletter (which was discontinued in 1998) contained a section “New publications”. This section contained references to all the books and articles related to Chadic languages the editor was aware of. In the present form of Chadic Newsletter Online, where news is spread in form of blog posts, this information could be spread much faster. The problem is: We are not always aware of everything that is published in our field. That is why we need your help!
Please don’t hesitate to send us details about your research, conference papers, publications, word lists, recordings, reviews, websites or anything else on Chadic you find interesting and want to share. On our contact page you can find more details about how to reach us.
More bibliographic references related to Chadic languages can be found in the collections of the Mega-Chad Association and also in 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.

The “Online Bibliography of Chadic and Hausa Linguistics”, compiled by Professor Paul Newman of Indiana University, is a comprehensive, open access bibliography containing more than 2500 entries. The initial edition (Version 01) is now available as a searchable pdf file on the website of DEVA, Institute of African Studies, University of Bayreuth. To access the bibliography, find the baobab tree thumbnail at the bottom of the page and click on the Chadic Hausa link.
This initial Version 01 is presented in PDF format only. The goal in the future is to make the bibliography available in database format as well. Scholars using the bibliography will have the opportunity to contribute to its completeness and accuracy by submitting additions and corrections to be incorporated in subsequent editions.
