A Polyglot Pocket Dictionary of Lingála, English, French, and Italian now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of A Polyglot Pocket Dictionary of Lingála, English, French, and Italian by Zekeh Gbotokuma.
A Polyglot Pocket Dictionary of Lingala, English, French and Italian represents a glossary that allows the reader to appreciate positive diversity and interculturalism through multilingualism. Building on, and referring to, the author’s experiences of studying and living abroad as a series of transits, transitions, and translations, it urges the reader to enhance their global competency and brain power, and to seek cosmocitizenship through the study of world languages and cultures. To this end, it shares enlightening reflections on the benefits of multilingualism, and allows the reader to develop basic language skills in Lingala, English, French, and Italian. As such, in addition to the glossary, this work also contains key facts about the languages at hand, as well as useful phrases, weekdays, numbers, and elements of grammar.
