Abstract:This edited volume commemorates the work of Christopher Olatunji Awonuga by looking at language, literature and style in Africa. Contributors examine both analytical and theoretical issues and reflect on semantics, specific African authors, lexicons and the relationship between technology and pedagogy. Examples are drawn from Libya, Nigeria, South Africa and Zimbabwe. Contributions: Profile of Professor Christopher Olatunji Awonuga (B. O. Okanlawon); Free indirect style in three canonical African novels written in English (A. E. Arua); Going beyond borders: Rushdie, Okri and the deconstruction of realism (D. Owoeye); Manipulative use of short messaging service text messages by Nigerian telecommunications companies (K. A. Ayoola); ''Facebook style'': the use of emoticons and graphic signs by users in the Cape Flats (N. Chariatte); The use of Facebook in theatre studies (F.-K. Omoregie); Straddling the prose-poetry divide for semantic functionality: Vera's ''Under the Tongue'' (S. Zhou); A lexico-stylistic analysis of Kaine Agary's ''Yellow-Yellow'' (T. Abioye, E. Ajiboye); Adjectives of colour in Libyan short stories: a stylistic analysis (S. M. Elnaili); Making applied linguistics relevant in Africa: a theoretical perspective (M. M. Alimi).
