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.

Notice: Dear Colleagues,

I would like to publish the findings of my Masters dissertation as a short article (sometime referred to as a ‘research note’) and I am looking for journals that might be interested. After some research I wrote to the editors of Human Communication Research and Communication Research Reports, but HCR no longer publishes research notes and CRR is a quantitative journal (my study was qualitative). The study examined openings of personal Skype conversations in relation to Schegloff’s opening sequence for phone calls and I have found an interesting regularity in my corpus of 10 calls. I would very much appreciate any suggestions regarding journals that may be interested, and am happy to write a summary of the replies.

Best wishes,

Dorottya Csenge Cserzo
