About Me

I am studying towards an MPhil specialising in Digital Curation, and my focus is on linguistic linked data. I am also studying part-time for a BA in Linguistics and African Languages.

I've been working on Londisizwe, an e-book project that aims to digitise works by South African authors in the public domain, making them available for free download.  I digitised two books by Sol Plaatje in 2014 and 2015 - Mhudi and Sechuana Proverbs. I've digitised the English-Xhosa Dictionary for Nurses and I'm currently developing a Linguistic Linked Data framework so that it is both human- and machine-readable.
