New publication

Today we published the 18th volume of Language Documentation and Description. It is a special issue that deals with the phonology, morphology, and syntax of Sylheti, a minority language spoken in Bangladesh, India and diaspora communities in the UK, USA and elsewhere. You can read my post about the volume on EL Blog, and download all the papers for free from LDD 18.

Website extended

Today I added more categories in the main menu, especially sections on Blogs, Publishing, and my Publications, with sub-menus for the Publications category. A full listing of my 18 books, 50 book chapters and 47 journal articles has now been completed, with links for some of the items to downloadable PDFs -- over time I will add more of these links to make my work available for others. I added some more information in the 'About me' page, as well as on the main home page.

Website established

Today, I established my personal website with the assistance of David Nathan. As new materials are added I will post on this page. I decided to establish my own website for several reasons:

  • my personal page at SOAS is incomplete and has not been updated for two years, and I have no way to make changes to it now that I am retired;
  • I have made many of my publications and unpublished papers available on Academia however users need to join it in order to download materials, and Academia is a commercial operation that charges for anything other than basic access;
  • I wanted to have a single place that would unite my various projects, blogs, publications, and current work, to make it easier for interested people to access everything in one place.
