Just after then, Alain Ghio and Yohann Meynadier will go on a mission to Tanzania from November 28 to December 15. This mission is part of the SYSORI project and has two components. First, a mission to record Wambugu speakers in the Usambara Mountains. Then the second part of the mission will consist of training work at the University of Dar Es Salaam where lessons and practical work in phonetics will be offered to students of linguistics. This mission will be carried out together with Didier Démolin (Professor of phonetics emeritus at the Sorbonne Nouvelle and partner of the Sysori project) as well as with Maarten Mous (Professor of African linguistics at the University of Leiden, Netherlands).
