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.

Notice: Hi Everyone!

I'm coming to Boston for a conference on November 1st till 8th. I find the accommodation there pretty expensive, and for a PhD student's budget it can be really really discouraging. This is why I am looking for a friendly soul to give me some crash space for as many nights as you can while I'm there. I'm an absolute non-smoker, very eco-friendly, so I know how not to waste water/electricity etc, and besides I will be away all day at the university. THANKS FOR HELP, and PLEASE PASS MY INQUIRY TO ANYBODY YOU THINK WOULD WANT TO HELP ME. GBU, Magdalena
