Cephas Delalorm completed his bachelor degree in Linguistics and Music at the University of Ghana in 2005. He moved on to do his Masters at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. In 2008 he completed an MPhil degree in Linguistics with a thesis on ‘A description of some morphological and allomorphic issues in Sekpele’. During this year he became interested in language documentation and description with a special interest in Sekpele (his mother-tongue) and the Ghana-Togo Mountain Languages (GTM) as a whole.
Cephas is currently enrolled in the MPhil programme at SOAS supported by an ELDP sscholarship and is planning to upgrade for the PhD. His research interests include nominal classification, morpho-phonology, morpho-syntax, linguistic fieldwork methodology, and language documentation and description. He had worked on vowel harmony in Sekpele and is currently working on the noun class system of Sekpele. His goal is to produce a descriptive grammar of Sekpele as his PhD thesis.
