Reviews

The ‘Complete Linguist’, prepared in memoriam, contains papers by twenty-four linguists and philologists from within the field of D.J. Dickens’ interests. The Namibian environment has been enhanced through papers on oral tradition, syntax, sociolinguistics and phonology, examining local tone/click languages. [...]

The ‘Complete Linguist’, carefully edited, constitutes an impressive scientific monument in memoriam of Patrick J. Dickens. At the same time it points out the many fields of African philology towards which Patrick J. Dickens would have contributed, if he would be still among us.
