Sudanese Colloquial Arabic for Beginn...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary This book was designed to enable someone with no previous knowledge of Arabic to learn to speak Sudanese Colloquial Arabic, also known as Khartoum Arabic. The approach used is eclectic, using a combination of dialogues, drills, grammatical explanation, role plays and ideas for conversation, to help the various kinds of learner, since not everyone acquires a language in the same way. There are also vocabulary lists for each lesson, and a glossary of all words used. People who have previously used the course have either hired a private tutor to take them through the lessons and provide them with practice, or have attended a class where they could interact with other learners. However, fluency can only be attained by using what one learns, so the course aims to encourage friendship with Sudanese people and immersion in the culture, which are richly rewarding experiences. Despite the length of time since this book's first publication there is still nothing else like it available for the beginner in Arabic. Andrew M. Persson has an M.A. from Oxford University in Oriental Languages and an M.A. in Sudanese & African Languages from the University of Khartoum. Janet R. Persson has an M.A. in Linguistic Science from the University of Reading. She is joint author with Rianne Tamis of Sudanese Arabic--English, English--Sudanese Arabic: A Concise Dictionary. The Perssons were involved for many years in linguistic research and language development with SIL International in Sudan and what is now South Sudan, including working in Sudanese Colloquial Arabic.

Sudanese Arabic – English / English –...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary This dictionary has been produced specifically as a resource for foreign learners of Sudanese Arabic. The language is spoken in Khartoum and throughout most of the Republic of Sudan, but it is essentially an unwritten language, since Modern Standard Arabic is almost always used for written communications. Foreigners therefore do not find it easy to learn the spoken language, though some course books do exist. So this dictionary will be invaluable for both beginning language learners and those who have already made progress in learning the language. It should supply all the vocabulary needed for everyday conversations and many working situations. Rianne Tamis holds an M.A. in Semitic Languages from the Catholic University of Nijmegen. She has worked at the Catholic Language Institute of Khartoum since 2002 as assistant director, course editor and teacher of Sudanese Arabic. Janet Persson has an M.A. in Linguistic Science from Reading University. For many years she has been involved in linguistic research with SIL International in a number of languages, including Sudanese Arabic. She and her husband Andrew are the authors of Sudanese colloquial Arabic for beginners.

Morphology and Syntax: Tools for Anal...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary In this expansion of work by John Daly, Larry Lyman, and Mary Rhodes, Albert Bickford shares his enthusiasm for languages and linguistics with the reader by presenting a practical guide for acquiring skills necessary to analyze the morphology and syntax of languages around the world. Written in an informal, personal style, this is a practical book for teacher and student alike, a rich storehouse of references and helps in addition to the theoretical content drawn broadly from work within generative grammar. Most chapters begin with a statement of goals and a list of prerequisites for understanding the information contained in them. Examples and explanatory diagrams are distributed liberally throughout the text. The review of key terms, questions for analysis, and sample descriptions which appear at the end of most chapters help the student to apply the theoretical material. References for further reading are provided for those wishing to study further. Dr. Bickford serves in Tucson, Arizona, as a linguistic consultant with the Summer Institute of Linguistics, teaching and advising language workers who are investigating the languages of Mexico. Most summers he teaches the course from which this book developed at the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota, and directs the University's graduate program in linguistics.

Local Literacies: Theory and Practice...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary While many books have been written about basic literacy, few offer detailed information on how to plan and carry out a community literacy project. Fewer still give guidance in tackling the additional barriers of language, culture, and logistics in developing countries and in treating the local community as an active partner rather than a passive recipient in the literacy process. In Local Literacies: Theory and Practice, Glenys Waters includes these elements and presents a practical guide for developing a literacy program. Beginning with a discussion of the theories of learning and reading, the author provides a detailed description of how to plan and organize a literacy program when the practitioner has little to go on but wit, knowledge, and determination. With approximately one half of the book given to the development of instructional methods and materials in reading, writing, and basic math, Local Literacies will be especially helpful to those doing literacy work in linguistically diverse settings in much of the developing world. The reader will quickly discover that this is a book written by a person who has "been there and done that." Waters has spent more than twenty years in Australia and Papua New Guinea, both as a practitioner and a consultant in programs of literacy for adults and children. This personal experience, plus a thorough knowledge of the professional literature, make Local Literacies a "must" for the pioneering literacy worker.

Juba Arabic for Beginners by Richard ...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary Juba Arabic is an Arabic creole closely related to Kinubi. It began developing in the Equatoria Region of what is now South Sudan over 100 years ago, and spread widely, now being the spoken lingua franca of the region. It has become so well established that expatriates working in Equatoria often find themselves in situations in which neither English nor Khartoum colloquial Arabic is adequate for communication. Juba Arabic for Beginners was originally prepared by SIL as a language course for the communication needs of its own personnel, but other people needing to communicate in Juba have found it invaluable. The present course was adapted from the excellent Sudanese Colloquial Arabic for Beginners (Andrew and Janet Persson, with Ahmad Hussein) in general format with its 30 dialogues. However, due to important linguistic and cultural differences, five additional lessons relevant to southern culture are included. This course is written in a Romanized orthography and represents a widespread dialect of Juba Arabic. Over the past 30 years, the course has served, and continues to serve, personnel of a number of expatriate organizations. Richard L. Watson (1980 Ph.D in linguistics, University of Texas-Arlington) worked with SIL in Vietnam for 15 years, largely focusing on the Pacoh language. He later moved to Sudan, where he was a linguistics consultant for 18 years. He recently published the Pacoh-Vietnamese-English dictionary, Noh Pacoh-Yoan-Anh (www.Pacoh.Webonary). Louis Biajo Ola is a native speaker of Juba Arabic and was crucial in helping prepare the lessons and teaching the first classes which used them.

Ensnared by AIDS: Cultural Contexts o...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary Ensnared By AIDS: Cultural Contexts of HIV and AIDS in Nepal Second Edition David K. Beine SIL International® Publications in Ethnography 42 How people make sense of illness is, in part, culturally determined. Existing community beliefs and presuppositions are organized as cultural models, which "make meaning" of new situations such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic. These cultural constructions can also contribute to the spread of the epidemic. This volume examines the meaning and cultural contexts of HIV/AIDS in Nepal, where AIDS is relatively new and rapidly growing. Until now little has been known about how Nepalis understand the illness locally known as "AIDS rog." This book presents the first long-term field study of the cultural dimensions of HIV/AIDS in South Asia. It examines how Nepalese cultural models of HIV/AIDS are developing, as well as illness schemata that underlie these models. It is one of the few ethnographies of HIV/AIDS to emphasize the depth and diversity of the people's view and construction of the emerging illness. It is also the only HIV/AIDS ethnography to utilize a discourse analysis (linguistic) approach. It should be of special interest to medical anthropologists, social epidemiologists and public health professionals. It will also be of interest to cognitive anthropologists, cognitive linguists, and psychological anthropologists, because it addresses how people incorporate new ideas into established cognitive systems. David Beine (Ph.D., anthropology, Washington State University) has lived and worked in Nepal over several periods from 1988-2001, including affiliation with Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu during doctoral research in 1998-2000. He is a Senior Anthropology Consultant for SIL and currently resides in Spokane, Washington, where he teaches cultural anthropology and linguistics. He visits Nepal yearly for applied anthropology and sociolinguistic research.

Bible Translation Basics: Communicati...

KShs6,000.00 KShs4,500.00
Brief Summary Over the past thirty years, scholars have made significant advances in understanding how human communication functions. They have moved from looking for meaning in texts alone to seeing texts as providing clues that lead hearers to discover the speaker's intended meaning. Hearers use other inputs as well—things they already know, information from the speech environment—as they search to understand not only what the words of the text say but also what the speaker is communicating. All this has significant implications for Bible translation. Bible Translation Basics accomplishes two things: 1) it expresses these theoretical developments in communication at a basic level in non-technical language, and 2) it applies these developments to the task of Bible translation in very practical ways. Tried and tested around the world, people with a secondary school education or higher are able to understand how communication works and apply those insights to communicating Scripture to their audiences. Bible Translation Basics helps translators work with language communities to determine the kind of Scripture product(s) that are most relevant for them, given their abilities and preferences.
