Reconstructing Orality on Amazigh Websites

Abstract : The chapters of this book discuss a variety of forms that African Orality takes up in Algeria, RD Congo, Morocco, Nigeria, and in the African Diaspora. These are contexts in which communication and literary creation are marked by the diffusion of print, radio, television and more recently the Internet. Changes as well as continuities - which both mark oral forms in the long run - are addressed in this collection. Some of the chapters investigate the new dimensions that oral communication has taken in African languages because of the increasing presence of literacy and technical media. Other chapters focus on the long-term exchanges and interactions of oral and written forms in contexts marked by the presence of oral/written diglossia and multilingualism, and yet others address the striking continuity and present functions of oral genres.
