The Comprehensive Bibliography of Chadic and Hausa Linguistics is an updated, expanded, and corrected edition of the print book published some twenty years ago by Rüdiger Köppe Verlag (Newman 1996). The outpouring of new publications on Chadic and Hausa in the ensuing years created the need for an updated bibliography. The first edition of this online bibliography was published in 2012 at Bayreuth University, the second edition in 2013 at Indiana University (, and the current third edition in 2015, also at Indiana University. This comprehensive bibliography covers all works written on Chadic and Hausa languages and linguistics dating from 1790 to the present. In addition to published books and articles, the bibliography includes unpublished Ph.D. dissertations and master's theses. The bibliography is international in scope and covers works regardless of the language in which they were written. For example, there are close to a hundred works written in Hausa. Titles of works in languages other than English, French, or German are accompanied by English translations. Russian titles in Cyrillic script are transliterated into Roman script. Book reviews are listed under the entry for the book being reviewed. A new feature of this 3rd edition is the addition of a Book Review Author Index, which indicates all the books that any individual has reviewed. Finally, the bibliography contains a section consisting of obituaries, (auto-) biographical essays, and related works on major scholars, now deceased, who have contributed significantly to Chadic or Hausa linguistics.
