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.

"New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics" is a selection of papers presenting
some of the ongoing research in Greek Linguistics. The contributions in
this volume, which have their origin in the 4th Athens Postgraduate
Conference in Linguistics, refer to various theoretical frameworks and
cover a wide range of topics (from phonology of dialects to acquisition of
syntax); however, they share the common reference to Greek and Theoretical
Linguistics. The second common feature is a tendency to investigate already
known problems using new methods, considering different factors from
previous research or introducing innovative ideas. The volume is dedicated
to Professor Gaberell Drachman and Professor Angeliki Malikouti-Drachman as
a small token of gratitude for their ceaseless presence and their
contribution to Theoretical Linguistics, to Greek Linguistics and to
postgraduate studies in Linguistics in Greece.
This volume is of particular interest to linguists working on various areas
of Greek Linguistics, especially those who would like to keep up with
ongoing research. It presents an opportunity to see the application of
linguistic theory in Greek and the current comparative research.
