Featured Linguist!

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.

FYI: Communication,Apartment to share at LSA

Author: salman

FYI Body: I am a Bangladeshi national teaching English Language at a University
in Dhaka. My Bachelors and Masters are in Linguistics. Linguistics as
a discipline is far behind in this part of the world. With this
problem in mind we have formed a research organization, namely, Centre
for Linguistic Thought, of which, I am the Director. We would like to
exchange views with linguists worldwide.

If you are interested in such an exchange, please contact me
at the following address:

I am looking for 4 people to share an apartment for the LSA Linguistic
Institute (from June 23 to August 2). The apartment overlooks one of
the gorges in Ithaca and is about a 10 minute walk from the Linguistics
Department (between campus and downtown). The rental for the Institute
should be significantly less than the dormitory accomodations, and
much more pleasant. Please contact me if you are interested.
