The first part of the book contains a comprehensive classification of Kenyan languages, looks at their distribution, and studies some special language situations. The second part is concerned with language use, including the special status of Swahili, and discusses both the effects of urbanization and education, and patterns of bilingualism. The third part analyses the organization of language teaching and teacher training in Kenya.
