Subject: A Festschrift for Dele Samule Adeyanju - Call for Papers

 
Professor Dele Samuel Adeyanju is a professor of English Language at the
Department of English, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Oyo
State, Nigeria. His researches are deeply rooted in Sociolinguistics. From
this fount of exploring the relationship between language and society,
Professor Adeyanju has produced research reports published in top-ranking
international and local journals and books indicative of application of
interdisciplinary methodologies with taproots in sociolinguistic theories. He
has investigated,for nearly over two decades of academic work, issues
appertaining to taboos, greetings, political discourse and linguistic features
of Nigerian English. He has combined methods of variation analysis, semantic
analysis, pragmatic theories and speech acts theories to the analysis of data
collected from the speeches of Nigerian speakers of English as a Second
Language. His academic essays dwell on the sociolinguistic, stylistic and
pragmatic features of Nigerian English. These essays have been published in
reputable journals in Nigeria, Europe, America and Asia. That explains the
spread of his academic acceptability, giving credence to the strong quality of
his scholarship. This teacher’s experience of teaching English cuts across
secondary school and tertiary classrooms. At the tertiary level, Professor
Adeyanju has supervised over a hundred undergraduate and postgraduate research
works including MPhil and PhD Theses. This great scholar will turn 60 on March
28 2018. To celebrate Professor Dele Adeyanju’s many recorded milestones
especially his academic and social contributions, a Festschrift, with the
proposed title "Sociolinguistics, (Critical) Discourse, Pragmatics and
Nigerian English: a Festschrift in honour of Dele Samuel Adeyanju", has been
planned. Well-researched theoretical and empirical papers are invited from the
Nigerian and International scholars across the globe on the following areas
and other related areas, but not limited to, of Professor Adeyanju’s research
foci to be included in the Festschrift in his honour, coinciding with his 60th
