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.

Theoretical and Applied Perspectives in Comparative Grammar
This volume offers a coherent collection of 26 papers presented at an
international conference held in November 2010, exploring the latest

looking for new perspectives to update their approach to classical Latin.
