Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Institution/Organization: Laval University (Qu├ębec, CANADA)

Notice: I am a Japanese Ph.D student in general linguistics who has been working on Russian (Slavic) prefixation on loan-verb material. My focus is on the data based Slavic S-/Z- prefixation in Russian material within the Cognitive Slavic Linguistic framework.

I need critical/fruitful/constructive comments on what I have written so far,
