The appended announcement was posted on the "Igbo language & ICT" board : http://www.quicktopic.com/17/H/tCcDxVXHgQxN (see message no. 102). It would seem appropriate for reposting on H-WestAfrica, H-Africa and perhaps H-Hausa (noting mention of "interethnic relations" and "power structures in Nigeria"). Thanks in advance and all the best! Don Don Osborn, Ph.D. firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> *Bisharat! A language, technology & development initiative *Bisharat!
