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.

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.

Phonological Structure and Phonetic Form brings together work from
phonology, phonetics, speech science, electrical engineering,
psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics. The chapters in this book are
organized in four topical sections. The first is concerned with stress and
intonation; the second with syllable structure and phonological theory;
the third with phonological features; and the fourth with 'phonetic

The two previous volumes, like the conferences from which they were
derived, have been influential in establishing Laboratory Phonology as a
discipline in its own right. Phonological Structure and Phonetic Form will
be equally important in making readers aware of the range of research
relevant to questions of linguistic sound structure.
