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.

Book Cover: Reimer
A new volume (in French) on Mubi has been published at Reimer Verlag:
Herrmann Jungraithmayr. La langue mubi (République du Tchad). Précis de Grammaire – Textes – Lexique (Sprache und Oralität in Afrika, Volume 27). 226 p. + 1 Ill.; 17 × 24 cm, ISBN 978-3-496-02852-9, Price: 69,00 € [D] | 88,80 SFR [CH]
The book comprises a sketch of the grammar (80 pages), a text collection (50 pages) and a lexicon (60 pages).
The following short description can be found at the website of Reimer Verlag:
“Le mubi (moubi) ou Monjul est une langue tchadique parlée par environ 35000 locuteurs dans l’est de la République Tchad. Il s’agit d’un membre particulièrement innovateur de la famille tchadique et qui représente la branche tchadique la plus éloignée du sud-ouest du phylum hamito-sémitique. Parmi ses traits caractéristiques, il y a l’apophonie allant dans le lexique et la morphologie, surtout dans la formation du système aspectuel binaire. En ce qui concerne le lexique, l’influence de l’arabe est forte. Ceci n’est pas surprenant dans le sens où l’islam et les dialectes arabes jouent un grand rôle dans la société mubi. Cependant, cette expansion de l’arabe pourrait mettre en danger les langues locales.”
A table of contents can also be downloaded at the website of Reimer Verlag.

Papers are solicited for the 36th annual meeting of the North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL 36), which will be held in Chicago, IL, USA from March 14-16, 2008 (Friday-Sunday).
Papers on linguistic topics relevant to the languages of the Afroasiatic phylum (Chadic, Berber, Cushitic, Omotic, Egyptian, Semitic) are requested. Topics relating to all aspects of Afroasiatic languages will be considered, particularly including phonology, morphology, syntax, comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics, and epigraphy. These topics should be considered as general guidelines and are not intended to be exclusive.

In addition to the general sessions, there will be a special panel on Comparative Afrasian, dedicated to Alan S. Kaye. Participants who wish to contribute to this panel should indicate their preference when submitting the abstract or contact Lionel Bender (eswgsiu.edu).
Abstracts describing the precise topic treated with a length of approximately 200-300 words can be sent as an electronic version (pdf or word document) or as a paper copy to the addresses specified on the registration page on the website(www.nacal.org).
