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 journal: Indo-European Linguistics
Indo-European Linguistics (IEL) is a new, double-blind peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of the Indo-European languages from the perspective of modern linguistics. It provides a venue for synchronic or diachronic linguistic studies of the older Indo-European languages and the Indo-European family as a whole, within any theoretical or analytical framework. IEL welcomes submissions dealing with phonetic, phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic aspects of the older Indo-European languages; historical studies of any of the Indo-European languages or branches, including problems related to the reconstruction of proto-Indo-European; typological investigations, including those which make use of data from non-Indo-European languages; and research which draws upon the findings of language acquisition, cognitive science, variationist sociolinguistics, or language contact. Contributions with a focus on more 'traditional' topics such as sound change or etymology, but which have ramifications for linguistic theory or general issues of language use, acquisition, and change, are likewise encouraged.
IEL will be published by Brill Academic Publishers in both print and electronic form. The electronic form will be open access for the first five years of the journal's publication. The print form will appear once per year as a volume of ca. 300 pages. The electronic version of articles will be posted as they are ready for publication.
