Update from Sali

Another member of our faculty, Salikoko Mufwene, has also been keeping a brisk pace with his scholarly activity of late. His recent publications range from several chapter contributions to new books on the evolution of language, language change and global Englishes to a co-authored peer-reviewed article on “Building social cognitive models of language change” (Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 13: 464-469).

Sali has also given several public lectures (in Montreal and the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association) and radio interviews on both Radio Canada International (on African contributions to creole language varieties and cultures) and BBC “Word of Mouth” (on creoles and media representation of nonstandard dialects).
