  • This study examines the issue of multilinguali sm in sub-Saharan Africa. It first gives an overview of the language situation in a select group of sub-Saharan African countries and then investigates the place of multilingualism in two vital aspects of the political life of the region, namely, education and communication. Finally it proposes a model for classifying sub-Saharan African countries according to their levels of commitment to the use of indigenous languages.
