2024: Special Issue: Hausa texts from Maradi (Niger) collected by Claude Gouffé in 1968 (with annotations in French)

SALC Special Issue 2024 is documentation of the Hausa oral tradition from Niger. The texts, originally handwritten notes from field research, are the legacy of the outstanding French researcher of the Hausa language and culture, Claude Gouffé (1926-2013). The edition preserves the original spelling rules of the texts and comments on linguistic forms and content. In the presented edition, records of interviews with an informant using the Hausa dialect from Niger are presented in thematically separate sections: ethnographic texts, oral literature texts (stories) and praise poetry (kirari).
