What is/are your mother tongue(s)?

My first mother tongue is abidji, a kwa language from Ivory Coast. I have done various studies and research in abidji based on the Principles & Parameters Theory of the Generative Grammar. Since October 2013, in association with my husband and my friends, we've founded a NGO named "Nutrition & Education for Children", by puting into action our abilities and skills for an upward quality in the educational system of Ivory Coast by building up a school (Primary & Secondary School) with a bilingual education (Abidji/French). French is my second mother tongue and I really love to speak French. I am so happy to know that it's one of the official languages of Switzerland!!!

What languages do you speak?

Abidji, French, English, German and Spanish

What is/are your nationality/nationalities?

Ivorian (from Ivory Coast or Côte d'Ivoire in French)

What country/countries did you live in?

Ivory Coast, England, Switzerland

Have you ever studied linguistics?

Yes, I have done my studies in General Linguistics and then I've chosen Generative Grammar as option for the description of Abidji, my 1st mother tongue!!!


Hi, I'm Clarisse Hager, Generative Linguist and live in Wallisellen/ZH. I love languages, communication, and my aim is to make Abidji, my native language in Ivory Coast - a written language. That's why I wrote a PhD in Linguistics on abidji language.
