    Sinopse

    The study of language was crucial to the development and maintenance of colonial power in South Africa. Focusing upon European representations of the Xhosa and Zulu languages, and offering detailed historically, socially, and politically contextualized readings of a wide range of linguistic materials - travellers' wordlists, grammars, dictionaries, reading books - Rachael Gilmour explores the complex relationship between colonialism and linguistic thought in South Africa in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In particular, she reveals how colonial representations of languages were contingent upon, and bound up with, the shifting relationships between speakers of those languages and the colonial regimes. In doing so, she exposes not only some of the ways in which colonial linguistics contributed to the making of the colonial order, but also the complexities and instabilities at the heart of this project to 'make sense' of South Africa.
