"If your God is so mighty, why doesn't He speak my language?"

A Cakchiquel (Guatemala) man to SIL founder William Cameron Townsend

Publications

Welcome to the pages for SIL Publications or Published books

Through the years people from SIL have written a huge number of publications in domains such as Language learning, Linguistics and Literacy. These publications document the work that has been done in the field and are available from the SIL Library. A number of titles found their way to Published books and are cited on the relevant page.

At SIL we are happy to be able to make many of these publications available to the People of Cameroon and researchers troughout the world by posting them on the Internet.

You may find the actual publications, usually as a PDF document, using the links to the left or directly from the Menu above.

Disclaimer

These electronic publications are published by SIL Cameroon. They represent the concrete results of research carried out by SIL field members and others. Some are preliminary work papers and not polished research. They are based on field notes and are in some cases the work of young researchers with minimal training. Language policy proposals included in technical documents do not necessarily represent the position of SIL Cameroon.
