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.

Subject: Quantitative Research in Applied Linguistics
Question: Hi, I'm Kisno from Indonesia and I work as a freelance applied linguist
in Batam, Indonesia. I have some students that are still confused and
stuck when doing a quantitative research in applied linguistics
especially in the language assessment topic. They are now attending
a literature major in their university but they get nothing from the
campus. Most of them are doing a two-variable language testing, but
in fact their lecturer forces them to apply three-variable research
which actually it is only two variables, for the sake of plagiarism by
the lecturer. What they do not get is the solution upon the problem.
Would anyone help me to find out the best solution upon their
problems? Is there any protection upon their research or is there
anyone intending to accept and publish their work before their
paperwork are stolen? Thank you.
