Movement of people within and between nation states has increased exponentially in the early part of the 21st century, and associatively, languages have also increased contact and overlapped with one another. As a result, the boundaries between the states, on the one hand, and languages, on the other hand, have become blurred and at best fuzzy. Southern African Linguistics and Applied Language Studies, Volume 34, Issue 3, is a special issue titled: “Translanguaging in the 21st century: New pathways for epistemic access and identity formation.” http://bit.ly/2hh7hIC

A new species of lanternshark, Etmopterus alphus (Squaliformes: Etmopteridae), is described from the south-western Indian Ocean. The new species resembles other members of the ‘Etmopterus lucifer’ clade in having linear rows of dermal denticles and most closely resembles E. molleri from the south-western Pacific.

The new species is fairly common along the upper continental slopes off central Mozambique, at depths between 472 and 558 m, and is also found on the southern Madagascar Ridge in 650–792 m depth.
