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: If you are a native British speaker, please help me by filling out the questionnaire to my final paper.
I am a Hungarian student at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Humanities, in Budapest, Hungary. I kindly ask for your help to my final paper, which is based on sociolinguistics. I would like to compare British and Hungarian animal names used in addressing terms. I would concentrate on the similarities and differences between the two nations' -British and Hungarian- language use taking some morphological and syntactic questions into coonsideration. I do not have many acquaintances from Britain, so it would be a great help for me, if you could fill in my questionnaire. You can find it in the following page:
What you have to do is to go to this given site, and you will find my questionnaire there.
Everybody, who is a native British speaker, is welcome to fill in the questionnaire.
Thank you very much for your kindness and help! :)
