Hello and welcome to my homepage! I use it to write about things related to my research (on language in Senegal at the moment) and travel that interest me in a less academic way. There are also photos and soundbites. If you wonder what a language sounds like that’s spoken by less than 1000 people in Southern Senegal check out the recording and transcript (inc. translation) of a piece in Bainounk Gubeeher. My favourite though is a recording of the sound of the forest at different times of the day, it transports you right there! If you want to know about my research and download some of the papers I have written about linguistic matters they’re there as well.
