1. TALC Workshop Pretoria

Interdisciplinary workshop with TALC researchers from South Africa and Germany

The TALC project held his first workshop on February 11th & 12th for researchers of the participating disciplines Speech and Language Therapy, (Computer)linguistics, Engineering and Computer Science. Setsipane Mokoduwe, the Head of the International Cooperation Division at the University of Pretoria and Lisette Andreae of the German embassy in South Africa were opening the workshop. In their welcoming words they both emphasized the interdisciplinary and international approach of the TALC project. The workshop aimed to compare each disciplines view on the topic of “transcription and analysis of (child) language data”, identify interdisciplinary interfaces and connect the German and South African pilot study. Special thanks go to the „South African Centre for Digital Language Resources“ (SADiLaR) who was making this successful workshop at the newly opened „Future Africa Campus“ at the University of Pretoria possible through their generous funding.
