Unveiling the Morphosyntax of Ɔkere: Insights from Fieldwork
Join us to learn more about state of the field research from BU PhD student, Okrah Oppong!
Okrah delves into the morphosyntax of Ɔkere, a Guan language spoken in Ghana. He provides insights into the fieldwork methodology employed and offers a comprehensive description of the language, alongside a discussion of relevant theoretical frameworks informed by previous fieldwork endeavors. As we explore the fieldwork approach, Okrah places particular emphasis on the strategies applied in the domains of morphology and syntax. Notably, the morphosyntax of Ɔkere exhibits intriguing structures that distinguish it from its closely related languages.
Okrah is a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at Boston University. His research interests are syntax and language description/documentation, focusing on under-researched languages.
