Notes: "Les textes sont donnés dans leurs transcriptions allemande, anglaise, française, et yorouba; le russe est transcrit en caractères latins"--Sheet 3.
"Included texts written between 1910 and 1948, mainly futurist Russian and 'Zaoum' texts as well as Dadaist writings ... In common they show a desire ... to break with the semantics of any given language, and to seek one of sounds with multiple associations"--Goeppert.
