Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Locating a linguist

Notice: Help! I am trying to find a way of contacting Maurice Tadadjeu, Université de Yaoundé, Cameroon, winner of the Lingua Pax Prize in order to invite him to be on the editorial board of a new academic journal Writing Systems Research as a representative of African writing systems. However while he clearly has a important public presence I can't find an email address for him. I would then be grateful for any help you could provide - I can't find him on the linguist list at all.

With many thanks
Yours sincerely
Vivian Cook, Professor of Applied Linguistics
