PUBLICATIONS OF THE OPLAND COLLECTION OF XHOSA LITERATURE
VOLUME 7


Robert Godfrey’s major contribution to Xhosa-language studies is his revised and expanded edition, published in 1915, of Albert Kropf’s classic Kafir-English Dictionary (1899). As a member of the staff of the Blythswood Institution, Godfrey edited the Blythswood Review, and in 1924, in preparation for a third edition of the Dictionary, he commenced an extended series of articles under the title Lexicography. Through these columns he invited his readers to supply him with the Xhosa names for birds and animals. The scope and range of the articles expanded, and he increasingly incorporated into his column quotations from pupils’ essays on Xhosa lore and language. Selections from these articles comprise Godfrey’s Bird-lore of the Eastern Cape Province (1941), now long out of print, and an article that Godfrey wrote on John Bennie (1934), but the articles as originally printed and as assembled here contain considerably more information, on a wider range of topics, and demonstrate the development of his knowledge.
