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.

Distributing Materials on Dependency Grammar

Notice: There used to be a website called something like 'the dependency grammar website,' based first in Stuttgart and then in Prague, where anybody could download various work on dependency grammar, including mine. Now there are many websites about dependency grammar, but apparently none of them have my work or, as far as I know, any of the versions of dependency grammar which used to be on 'the dependency grammar website'.

I now have my work available in electronic form. That includes the entire UDG text, and also two subsequent papers, one on Jacaltec, a native American language in Central America and Mexico, and one on the concept of dependency in morphology. I can email these to anyone who sends me an email address.

Ideally, I would like to make them available for downloading from a website, but I don't know much about the technology involved. Does someone host an existing website where I can make my work available through a free download?
