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.

Press release
=====================================


*** Non European organisations may become subscribers to ELRA now ***


ELRA (European Language Resources Association), a non-profi
association registered in Luxembourg, was established in 1995. Its
mission is to promote the development and exploitation of Language
Resources (monolingual and multilingual lexica, text corpora, speech
databases and terminology) within the Language Engineering field. ELRA
receives financial support from the European Commission and national
governments in Europe. Although its prime focus is on Europe, ELRA
also seeks active cooperation and exchange of resources with the
global Language Resources community.

As part of its policy of opening up its impressive catalogue of
Language Resources to research and commercial organizations outside
its core operating area, ELRA is pleased to announce that during its
meeting on April 30 1997, the Board decided to extend the opportunity
to become an ELRA subscriber (non-voting member) to non-European
organizations.

Subscribers will benefit from substantial discounts on the prices of
Language Resources similar to those offered to ELRA members, as well
as other services available only to members. This includes discounts
on publications related to Language Engineering activities (produced
by the major publishers), summaries of market surveys (about LR and
LE), newsletter (published quarterly in English and French), legal
consultancy regarding IPR, copyrights, etc., manuals for the
validation of LRs, special pages on the Web, entitled "For members
only".

The annual subscription fees are:
o non-profit organizations: 1,000 ECU,
o for-profit (commercial) organizations: 5,000 ECU.

To become a subscriber:
o non profit organisations have to pay a subscription fee of 1,000 ECU
o profit organisations have to pay 5,000 ECU

The subscription form can be completed directly from the one below or
it can be downloaded from the ELRA Web site.
