Publications in PDF format


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.

The following publications are available as PDF files. The titles are links to the actual files, which you may view using Acrobat Reader or save to your own disk.
