About me

Enock is curious about the diversity in language resources for expressing quantities. He is testing hypotheses to understand how cultures quantify differently, in their use of numerals among other quantity construing resources. Part of his studies focus on numerals in Kwa and Oceanic languages, utilising the phylogenetic methodology and nuanced descriptions of the systems. The studies promise to shed light on the origin and diversification of numerals, number cognition, and population history. As a doctoral researcher at the Department of Linguistics and Cultural Evolution, MPI-EVA, Enock contributes to our “Evolution of Cognitive Tools for Quantification” -  QUANTA - project and is a member of the CoOL group.
