My research interests include African languages, phonology (specifically tonology), (tense-aspect-modality) semantics, language description and documentation, language contact, and language variation, among others. My passion is describing little-studied language varieties, which can involve almost any subfield of linguistics.
As a result of my work on Anii, I have also become involved in language development workers’ efforts to promote and support literacy in the Anii community. I have conducted phonological studies of the nasals, the vowel harmony system, and the tone system in order to help with orthography development. The most interesting forum where this work is now being used is the new Anii-language magazine, with which I have been involved in a training capacity. (www.revue-gugu.org). I am also a member of the Beninese language development ONG LINGO Bénin (https://www.lingo-benin.org/)
A bit more information about Anii can be found on the French Wikipedia site (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anii). The English Wikipedia article is still a stub, but can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anii_language .
I would love to hear from you if you want to know more about any of the above topics!
