Afka iyo Suugaanta Soomaalida – Kulan-hawleedka Kowaad ee Af-aqoonka (Somali Language and Literature – First Linguistics Workshop)
Xarunta Dhaqanka ee Hargeysa | Hargeysa Cultural Centre
14-20 December 2015, Hargeysa, Somaliland
The objective of the workshop was to facilitate collaboration among scholars in the field of Somali language studies through presenting their ongoing projects or finished work. This also allowed others who are conducting research, studies, or simply take an interest in the domain of Somali linguistics to learn more about current issues and ideas in this field, and the audience at the workshop actually counted many participants besides the invited scholars, such as students, journalists and writers.
