Diversity and complexity in African languages

How similar to or different from each other can human languages be? Are all languages equally complex in their grammar? How do we investigate linguistic diversity and how do we measure linguistic complexity? In my research I try to answer these questions by looking at grammatical properties of nouns in a selection of 100 African languages.
