Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Notice: Dear all,

I am graduating with MSc in Linguistics (Phonology) on June 7, 2005 and plan to take some time off school to work.

I have experience teaching LING 101, and 102 (though can handle others as well). I also have experience teaching ESL (particularly conversation, pronunciation, and grammar) up to advance levels.

Regarding research, I have experience collecting phonological data as well as phonetic–data transcriptions. I work on tone and am interested in tone research. I am also interested in the area of syntax.

If you have or know anyone who has jobs related to my interest and experience, please kindly contact me.

Thank you
