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.

Title: LABORATORY MANUAL for Morphology and Syntax, 7th Edition
Written By: William R Merrifield
Constance M. Naish
Calvin R. Rensch
Gillian Story
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556711497
Description:

The promise of 'regular' upgrades of the sixth edition is now a beginning reality after a mere sixteen years, due, undoubtedly, to the wonders of 'electronic' storage. Actually, the electronic version of 1987 was helpful, but akin to a stone-age tool in 2003. This is not a major revision. A number of the datasets (nee 'problems') are changed in minor ways; the typography is, I think, much improved; but none of the last-edition datasets has been deleted, nor have any new ones been added. IPA symbols have replaced Americanist symbols in some datasets; but not uniformly. Some datasets remain or have been recast in orthographies used by reading populations of certain languages where phonological issues are not in view.
