Swahili lexicography in Poland: its history and immediate future

Beata Wójtowicz, Piotr Bański


The interest in Swahili lexicography at the University of Warsaw has a long tradition and was initiated by the first lecturer of Swahili – prof. Rajmund Ohly. He was not only an observer but his name has been indelibly written into the history of Swahili lexicography.
