Author: Mieke Hofmeyr

Mr. Dimakatso Mathe is SADiLaR’s Sesotho sa Leboa researcher. When it comes to research he finds the areas of morphology, syntax and language processing tools, to name but a few, very interesting.

When it comes to his current projects he says the following: I am currently working on my PhD study which aims to investigate similarities and differences of some of the dialects found in Sesotho sa Leboa from a morpho-syntactic viewpoint”

Other projects that he is currently working on include a speech data collection project which will result in recording and dissemination of Sesotho sa Leboa dialectal spoken data for research. He is also busy with a collaborative research paper which was presented with SADiLaR colleagues at a conference. This paper offers a detailed overview regarding the current state of Digital Humanities practice in South Africa.
