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: Hi everyone,

I am currently writing a dissertation on the future of Russian in Kazakhstan
and was wondering if anyone had any information on resources for the topic. In particular, I am interested in Russian interference in
Kazakh speech of Kazakhstanis. I am also trying to get hold of the following
book which I think may have the relevant chapter in it:

Ċ ajbakova, D. D.: Russian Language in Kazakhstan: Yesterday, Today,
Tomorrow, Almaty 2005

I know it is available in Almaty, but at the moment I am in England. If
anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please let me know.
