Abstract:This volume in honour of Professor of Linguistics Ben O. Elugbe collects 75 papers on various topics of linguistics, with a focus on Nigerian languages. A number of the papers were presented at the 22nd Annual Conference of the Linguistic Association of Nigeria, held at the University of Maiduguri in 2009. Several papers are concerned with issues of language policy, language planning, language development and language education. Others deal with topics in linguistics (addressing issues of phonology and grammar in Yoruba, Oko, Igbo, Koring, Kilba (Hong & Gaya dialects), Anglo-Nigerian Pidgin, Owe, Ejagham, Edo and Edoid languages, Ibani, Grd?, English, Arabic, Ibibio, Tiv, Hausa and Miship), literature (for example, magical realism in contemporary Yoruba novels, stylistic elements in the performances of Kanuri hunters' songs, and exposure of harmful cultural practices on women in the plays of Julie Okoh and Stella Oyedepo), and culture and language usage (for example, Ngas and Nerom proverbs, undergraduates' sexual discourse, code-mixing and switching in contemporary Yoruba Christian gospel and Islamized music, seaman use of English in the Nigerian navy).
