Since the Afranaph Project Development Workshop in December, 2010, several new research initiatives to be based on the Afranaph infrastructure, methodology, consultant network and open access database have been in development, and now, in January 2012, they are ready to be launched.
Each ASP has the opportunity to ask to contact current Afranaph consultants for new elicitations, in the form of a questionnaire designed by the ASP, exploring the empirical realms of interest to the ASP in question. Initial funding to support native speaker linguistic consultants for their questionnaire responses will be borne by Afranaph. Sentence data collected by ASPs will be entered into the general Afranaph database, fully tagged for certain general search parameters, along with the usual full gloss, morpheme breakdown and translation. However each ASP will have its own search page portal for the common database which will be designed to have the search parameters relevant to that particular ASP, i.e., the initial search page for the Afranaph Project proper will be different from the initial search page of a particular ASP, and there will be search parameters not on the Afranaph page that are found on the ASP page and vice versa, reflecting tagging more specific to one ASP as opposed to another. Most likely, each ASP will maintain its own webpage, make its own personnel decisions, and ultimately be supported by its own funding.
