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

Journal of Language Modelling
Journal of Language Modelling (JLM) is a semi-annual peer-reviewed open access free electronic journal aiming to bridge the gap between theoretical linguistics and natural language processing.
Although typical articles are concerned with linguistic generalisations - either with their application in natural language processing, or with their discovery in language corpora - possible topics range from linguistic analyses which are sufficiently precise to be implementable to mathematical models of aspects of language, and further to computational systems making non-trivial use of linguistic insights. See http://jlm.ipipan.waw.pl/ for more information, including past issues (cf. the ALL ISSUES tab) and the Editorial Board (cf. ABOUT).
This is a call for submissions to issue 2(1), to be published in June 2014. In order to maximise the chance that a manuscript is fully processed in time to be published in this issue, it should be submitted by the end of *December 2013*. Note, however, that regardless of the half-yearly collection of papers into issues, articles appear at the JLM web page as soon as they are accepted and edited.
