It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep. The University of Cape Town and my new colleagues welcomed my efforts to establish the Centre for African Language Diversity-- CALDi as well as The African Language Archive-- TALA and I was recently appointed the Mellon Research Chair: African Language Diversity this initiative. The main aim of CALDi is to train young African scholars in descriptive linguistics and open up space for research into African languages at UCT with the hopes of countering the dominance of African linguistics outside the continent. It has been a great challenge for which my whole career has been a form of preparation...Read more
The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.
This volume is a selection of papers from the European Summer Meeting of the Association for Symbolic Logic, held in Veszprem, Hungary, in August 1992. The papers included grew out of invited and contributed talks on the two main themes of the conference, algebraic logic, and the axiomatizability and decidability of logical systems. Written from an interdisciplinary perspective, most of the contributions investigate logical properties of formal systems by studying algebraic properties of corresponding classes of algebras, or vice versa. The remaining papers focus on connected areas from model theory and the combination of logics. Significant and timely, LOGIC COLLOUIUM '92 is a collection of articles on algebraic logic and related areas written by the leading scholars in these fields.
