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

Research on Language and Computation
Research on Language and Computation is ceasing to publish with Springer after the next
volume. We are moving to the Corner of Language and Computation in the Journal of Logic
and Computation, Oxford University Press, and you can see our Corner there
The Corner will publish high quality, leading edge research papers in computational
linguistics and natural language processing. It features work that deals with
interesting theoretical dimensions of research on formal, empirical, and application
questions. Language and Computation examines syntax, semantics, morphology, phonology,
dialogue and discourse, theories of grammar, machine learning and computational learning
theory applied to natural language, mathematical and complexity properties of natural
language systems, and the implementation of procedures for natural language analysis,
generation, and translation. The Corner is particularly interested in articles addressing
the relation of logic to the computational and formal properties of natural language.
In addition to full articles, the Corner also publishes shorter notes.
We invite authors to submit papers to us through Jane Spurr (email@example.com),
Administrator of the Journal of Logic and Computation. Please indicate clearly that
the paper is being submitted to the Corner for Language and Computation, and send it
as a pdf file.
