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

State of the Art in Computational Morphology
Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology, SFCM 2009, Zurich, Switzerland, September 4, 2009, Proceedings
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Workshop on Systems
and Frameworks for Computational Morphology, SFCM 2009, held in Zürich,
Switzerland, in September 2009.
The workshop had three main goals: to stimulate discussion among reseachers
and developers and to offer an up-to-date overview of available systems for
German morphology which provide deep analyses and are suitable for
generating specific word forms; to stimulate discussion among developers of
general frameworks that can be used to implement morphological components
for several languages; to discuss aspects of evaluation of morphology
systems and possible future competitions or tasks, such as a new edition of
