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.

Linguistic Semantics

Notice: Dear fellow linguislist members,

I have been a member about one year since deciding to include linguistics -
specifically linguistic semantics - in my doctoral studies through Union
Institute and University www.tui.edu. You may recognize this as "the
university without walls" in which each learner must develop his/her own
curriculum and course/module syllibi. I am working on the linguistics module
and dearly need support from someone willing to review my draft module for
adequacy of doctoral-level scholarship, and subsequently to review my
demonstration of learning for adequacy. There is no allowance for monetary
compensation associated with this position. If someone out there is willing,
or even interested, to support me in this work (about one month time-frame)
please respond and I will send more information about myself and my program.
