Jan-Olof Svantesson

Professor emeritus


I am engaged in three research projects,"Integrating the Structures of Information and Discourse: a cross-linguistic approach", led by Anastasia Karlsson, "Digitalt multimediaarkiv för austroasiatiskt immateriellt kulturarv (Dig-AAA or Rwaai)" lett av Niclas Burenhult and "In the borderland between song and speech. Vocal expressions in oral cultures" led by Håkan Lundström.

At present I am rather busy finishing the "Dictionary of Kammu Yùan language and culture" (by Jan-Olof Svantesson, Kàm Ràw, Kristina Lindell and Håkan Lundström), a project that started more than 40 years ago.
