Emmanuel Chabata is an Associate Research Professor of African Languages and Lexicography and is currently the Acting Director of the African Languages Research Institute (ALRI). He holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Oslo, Norway. Whilst Lexicography and Terminology are his main areas of research and specialisation, he also has research interests in computational linguistics, translation, language policy and planning and onomastics in which he has also published widely.

Professor Chabata has been a visiting researcher at many universities locally, regionally and internationally. Notable amongst them are the Universities of Oslo, Wisconsin-Madison, Dar-es-salaam, Zululand, Witwatersrand and Tswane-Nelspruit. Over the years, he has taught undergraduate and post-graduate courses at the UZ and other local universities. Some of the courses that he has taught include Translation and Lexicography, Terminology, Phonetics and Phonology, Corpus Linguistics, Shona Linguistic Structure, Research Methods and Shona Dialects and Orthography. He has also taught Shona to second language learners. He has also acted as external examiner for quite a few local and regional universities.

He has conducted research in a number of Zimbabwean languages that include Shona, Nambya, Tonga and Tswao. Over the years, he has provided translation services to many Governmental and Non-Governmental Organisations too numerous to mention.
