H-HAUSA – a mailing list on Hausa language, literature and culture

H-Hausa is a mailing list for the discussion of issues related to Hausa language, literature and culture. It started already in October 2002, but I came across it only now. Here is the first message sent in October 2002:

H-Hausa is for the discussion of issues related to Hausa language, literature and culture. It began as a list concerned exclusively with language, but it has also hosted discussions ranging from traditional, Arabic-based orthography to computerization of Hausa, from grammar to culture and other subjects. It has attracted academics, missionaries, former expatriates and Hausa themselves to the only list which deals primarily with Hausa issues.

The H-HAUSA list is edited by John E. Philips.

The list keeps logs of former discussions, and I have started going through the older messages, some of which are actually written in Hausa, e.g.
