My name is John Ganaah and I am a student from Ghana pursuing an Mphil in Linguistics here at the Institute of Language and Communication, Department of Linguistics of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim-Norway. I was admitted to the programme in Autumn 2009 and have since taken courses in Semantics. Syntax, Phonology, Pragmatics, Phonetics and Digital Methods in Speech processing where I work with the Linguistic annotation tool TypeCraft and the Phonetic annotation tool Praat.
I am from Sombo in the Upper West Region of Ghana and my mother tongue is Dagaare. My Mphil thesis is on a discourse form "kaŋa" in Dagaare as a specificity marker.
