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.

classroom discourse data

Notice: Hello all! I am a graduate student at CSU, Sacramento and was hoping someone could help me locate a resource for my thesis. I’m looking to analyze recorded classroom dialog from a public high school classroom.

I am researching how teachers through discourse invoke critical thinking in students. In an effort to minimize expenses and frustration, I’m interested in obtaining pre-recorded classroom audio gathered for a previous research project. I am more than willing to transcribe the data or assist a researcher in any way on their project as a gesture of cooperation.

Any leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
