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

New Perspectives On Argument Structure In Functional Grammar
Within the framework of Functional Grammar, the present monograph tackles one of the most pervasive issues in linguistic theory today, i.e. that of the representation of argument structure. Since the inception of Functional Grammar in 1978, argument representations configured as predicate frames have remained almost totally unchallenged. The book devotes extensive attention to new themes that will spawn future research in the lexical semantics of Functional Grammar. It will thus be of interest to theoretical and computational linguists interested in lexical semantics and Functional Grammar, as well as to cognitive scientists and lexicographers.
