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 to everybody,

my name is Maria Mazzoli, PhD student attending the Summer School on Linguistic Typology that will be held in Leipzig from the 14th August to the 3rd of September. I was wandering if there is anyone out there attending the school and wishing to share a room or a small apartment during the stay and, maybe, if any Leipzig based student would like to rent me his/her guest room for that period.

Thanks for your attention and I hope to hear from you!
