This is an annotated bibliography of basic tools of access for the study of the uncommonly taught European languages which are not national languages. The booklet is one of eight fascicles which constitute a revision of "A Provisional Survey of Materials for the Study of the Neglected Languages" (CAL 1969). The focus is on materials for the English-speaking adult learner. Languages are grouped according to the following classifications: (1) Scandinavian groups, including Danish, Faroese, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish; (2) West Germanic groups, including Dutch, Frisian, and Yiddish; (3) Keltic groups, including Breton, Irish, Scots or Gaelic, and Welsh; (4) Basque; (5) Western European languages including Catalan, Piedmontese, Sicilian, Portuguese, Galician, Provencal (or Gascon), and Sardinian; and (6) Uralic (Lappish). Several European-based pidgin and creole languages are also classified: English language derivatives including Beach-La-Mar (Bichelamar), Jamaican, Krio, Neo-Melanesian (New Guinea Pidgin), Saramakkan, Solomon Islands, Sranan, and West African Pidgin; French language derivatives including French Guiana, Haitian Creole, Lesser Antilles (Martinique, Dominica, and St. Lucia), Mauritian Creole, Reunion, and Seychelles; the Portuguese derivative of Crioulo; and the Spanish derivative of Papiamentu. Under each language heading the items are arranged as follows: teaching materials, readers, grammars, and dictionaries. Annotations are descriptive rather than critical. Wherever possible each entry contains the following bibliographical information: author, title, place of publication, date, and pagination. Reprints have been noted and accompanying tapes and records listed where known. A total of 39 languages are covered. An index is appended. (CAL/AM).
