Abstract:Article 58 of the Treaty of 28 May, 1975, instituting the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) states: 'The official languages of the Community shall be such African languages declared official by the Authority and English and French.' The language clause raises some fundamental questions concerning the latent problem of the choice of African languages as official languages of ECOWAS, the exclusion of Portuguese from the list of ECOWAS official languages, and the implication of plurilingualism for the Community Tribunal or Court.
