Research Fields Linguistics
I have engaged in descriptive research on the language group called ‘Bantu’ spread across sub-equatorial Africa. My focused subject languages are Matengo and Swahili spoken in Tanzania, and Herero spoken in Namibia. I also have conducted social linguistics research, including language situation and language policy.
