The Fruits of Linguistic Study
A paper that Chris wrote while a student at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics last year has been selected for publication by the school’s online academic journal.

Note that the language under discussion, Ngambay, is not the language we will be working with while in Zambia. Ngambay is a language spoken in southern Chad that Chris studied during the language practicum portions of Second Language and Culture Acquisition (SLACA) and Field Methods courses at GIAL.
A big “thank you” to our Ngambay Langugage Consultant, Mekoulnodji Ndjerareou. Thanks for your patience as you helped us prepare for field linguistic work! Your patience will help us be better linguists as we work to learn Nsenga and participate in the work of Bible Translation. I pray that all the terrible mistakes we made with your language will not be repeated…
