Bio Statement: Obed Nii Broohm is a final-year PhD student at the University of Verona, Italy. He obtained his BA and MPhil degrees in Linguistics from the University of Ghana. His research interest lies within the nominal morpho-syntax of Kwa languages, with particular interest in Esahie (alternatively referred to as: Sefwi, Asahyue, Samvi), a relatively understudied language. Obed’s current (PhD) research delves into both the inflectional and word formation system of the nominal domain in Esahie, with particular interest in issues including nominalization and compounding, and their interplay in some word formation phenomena. Prior to this, he worked on Information Structure in Kwa, with specific emphasis on Esahie.
