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.

The Sound of Indo-European 2
Papers on Indo-European Phonetics, Phonemics and Morphophonemics
The conception of this volume goes back to the 2010 Sound of Indo-European 2 (SIE2) conference that took place in Opava, Czech Republic. The session which followed in the series after the previous successful conference held in Copenhagen 2009 was dedicated to various aspects of Indo-European phonetics, phonemics, and morphophonemics. The papers dealt with questions relating to both the Indo-European protolanguage and specific branches of the Indo-European family. The program of the conference consisted of 40 papers, including five invited talks (Alexander Lubotsky, Gerhard Meiser, Norbert Oettinger, Georges-Jean Pinault, and Roger D. Woodard). Twenty-three papers of those presented at the conference appear in their revised version in this volume. The common denominator is historical linguistics, but some authors also extended their research into modern (mor)phonological theories. Being a selection of representative papers in Indo-European linguistics and following the tradition started in Copenhagen, the book will be valuable to all scholars interested in Indo-European linguistics.
