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 LINGUIST,

I would very much appreciate it if you would kindly help me in my quest .

I am a student of English preparing for my Masters Thesis on the order of adjectives in the English Language and their effective use by foreign students.

I am afraid I have not been able to find good references and books in Jordan, where I am attending university. I wonder whether you would very kindly e-mail me the chapters you consider important for my research as well as any other books, and sources you consider relevant and that is my proposal.

I look forward to hearing from you at your very earliest convenience in the hope that you will be able to help me with your recommendations and advice.

Yours sincerely,
