New Setswana Orthography book published!

"Mokwalo o o lolameng wa Setswana" is the title of the new Setswana Orthography book. It was written by a team of the following Setswana linguists: Andy Chebanne, Thapelo J. Otlogetswe, Pearl Seloma, Annah Molosiwa, Baitsi Moatlhodi, Naledi Kgolo and Mmaserame David.

The last Setswana Orthography text was produced in 1981 which was in serious need of revision. Unlike the 1981 text, the 2008 text is written in Setswana. Work on the book was sponsored by OSISA and Tomela ya Puo Organisations. The book will be distributed for free to different media houses, Curriculum, publishers and other departments that work closely with the Setswana language.
