Laré Kantchoa, lecturer of linguistics at the University of Kara, Togo, stayed from February to April 2008 as a DAAD fellow at the Chair of African Linguistics I (invited by Manfred von Roncador). During his stay he delivered a paper on the decline of the noun class system in Moba, a Gur language of the Gurma group. Currently, he is working on Miyobe, a language in Togo whose affiliation is debated, and he is trying to shed some light on its classification through comparison of its vocabulary with Gur languages. His stay is linked to the Gur research activities of “Afrikanistik I”.
