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.
The volume presents a collection of papers of recent generative work on
Modern Greek morpho-syntax. The book is divided into three parts. Part I of
the book deals with argument alternations, Part II with clitics and Part
III with the syntax and semantics of free relatives. The book will be
interesting for scholars working on Greek but also in theoretical
linguistics, as it exemplifies how the study of Greek feeds the development
of generative theory.
The issues discussed in the book are currently highly relevant for the
development of a satisfactory theory of comparative syntax as well as the
interface between syntax and morphology and syntax and semantics. Thus the
analyses put forth here will contribute to the elaboration of such a theory
and to our understanding of cross-linguistic variation.
