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.

Looking for Willem Hollman and/or Brian Murphy

Institution/Organization: University of Poitiers, France

Notice: Following Brian Murphy's recent posting (15.1497) on LINGUIST, I was particularly interested in the following reference :
Willem Hollman (University of Manchester) wrote his 2003 PhD on a universal account of periphrastic causatives (eg ''He was made do it''), including their passivisation.

Try as I might, I wasn't able either to locate Willem Hollman (could there be a spelling mistake in the name?) or even to contact Brian Murphy: for some reason, e-mails to his address keep bouncing. Could either of them please contact me or anyone tell me how to get in touch?

Thanks in advance,

Jean-Charles Khalifa
