Research Volunteer

The UBC West African Vowel research group is currently working on Dàgáárè, a Gur, Niger-Congo language that is spoken in Ghana. This project is part of a bigger project on West African Vowel Systems. If you are interested in linguistic research, this is an opportunity for you. You can work with the group as a research volunteer. As part of your duties, you will be required to annotate some audio-visual files. To do this, you will be trained on how to use ELAN, a linguistic tool for annotation and data management. To sign up as a volunteer, please contact Douglas Pulleyblank at
