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.

Need to find English word conversion book

Notice: Dear all linguists-

I'm a student majoring in linguistics in Korea. Now I'm interested in word conversion in English.

There is one book I would like to see, but cannot find: 'Zero derivation in English: A Cognitive Grammar Approach' written by Piotr Twardzisz in 1997. I've already searched on amazon.com and google, but can only find it on google books. As far as I can tell, there are some in stock at university libraries located in Germany.

Can anyone help me get the book online? Or, if there is a way to get the book in the U.S, I can ask my friend to get it.

Thank you very much in advance.
