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: Dear All,
I am working on a project on "Negation in subordinate clauses" on 10 different languages. I have consulted the standard grammars of these languages and I have the basic facts on negation on each of them. I will therefore need two or three examples of negation in subordinate clauses in the languages listed below:

Khalkha
Kannada
Thai
Tukang Besi
Barasano
Dyirbal

Any help or pointers to sources OTHER THAN the already published grammars of these languages will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Yvonne.
