Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Looking for Native Edo Speakers

Contact Email: click here to access email

Notice: I am a linguist at the University of Calgary currently looking for one to
two native Edo speakers who can help me document some of the
unique verb properties of this language. I have research funding
available which will allow me to compensate native language
consultants. I can pay consultants $20.00/hr for a total of 4 hours each
over the next two months. Correspondence will be conducted via email and I will consider such correspondence to be equivalent to 2 hours. The schedule will be determined based on consultant's availability. Any Edo speakers who can help me, please contact me at the following: jecooper@ucalgary.ca

Thank for your time.
