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.

Notice: Dear Linguists,

Hi, My name is Waleed Alrowsa, I am a PhD student doing linguistics at Louisiana State University, I have a revitalization project on minority spoken language called Mehri. I found this language to be very intresting to the theory of linguistics.

I found a very valuable source; a book written about Mehri language, and it has been written in Germany that I cannot read. My questions are:
Has this book been translated into English or Arabic?

How can you help me translating some portion of it namely the ones that deals with agreement part.

Thank you.
