Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Dear linguists,

About two weeks ago, I posted a query on two books and two articles.
(1) Jespersen, Otto. A Linguist's Life.[an English translation of his
(2) Jespersen, Otto. Progress in Language.
(3) Christophersen, P. 1972. "Otto Jespersen: A retrospect." Transactions
of the Philological Society 1-19.
(4) Haislund, Niels. "Otto Jespersen." In Thomas A. Sebeok, Portraits of
Linguists. vol.2. Bloomington & London: Indiana UP., 1966: 148-57.

Sebastian Adorjan Dyhr [s_adorjan_dyhr@hotmail.com] and Elisabeth Seitz
[elisabeth.seitz@uni-tuebingen.de] have promised to mail me a copy of
Jespersen's autobiography and his Progress in Language, respectively. As
regards the articles, I have received them sent by Robin Thelwall
[eubule@telusplanet.net] and Pam Lindell [plindell@ux1.cso.uiuc.edu]. My
query must have troubled all of you too much. I am greatly moved by your
warm help. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!

Best wishes!
