AFRREV LALIGENS: An International Journal of Language, Literature and Gender Studies

We have often ignored issues concerning linguistic and other socio-cultural resources such as feminism and gender studies in our search for development problems in Africa When linguistic issues are addressed at all, the fact that there is a multiplicity of languages in African countries is often seen as a hindrance to the development of the continent. This journal is geared towards addressing

  • the relationship between language and development and offers a specific proposal for addressing issues of language policy and planning in Africa and elsewhere in the world
  • the extinction and survival of many African languages
  • the role of foreign languages in African context
  • issues of gender portrayal in language and literature
  • the relationship between language and gender

Gender-related linguistic properties such as referential terms, word formations, syntactic structures, semantic connotations, social gender and idiomatic expressions.
