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: Beiträge zur Kenntnis der Rom-Sprache
Written By: Friedrich Müller
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM facsimile collection 01
Description:

Trotz der namentlich in neuester Zeit von mehreren Seiten gelieferten
Beiträge zur Kenntnis der Romsprache dürfte dieser Beitrag, welchen ich
hiermit dem linguistischen Publikum vorlege, schon deswegen nicht
unerwünscht sein, weil er grössere Originaltexte umfaßt und daher abgesehen
von dem Vorteile, welchen diese den Übersetzungen gegenüber darbieten, als
authentische Quelle zur Kenntnis des in Ungarn lebenden Rom-Volkes dienen
kann.

Die Mitteilung der Stücke, welche die vorliegende Sammlung umfasst (fünf
Märchen, neunundzwanzig Lieder und ein Brief), verdanke ich meinen
ehemaligen Zuhörer, Herrn L. Fialowski, einem in sprachwissenschaftlichen
Dingen gut unterrichteten jungen Mann, der mithalf unter den in Wien
garnisonierenden ungarischen Regimentern die Erzähler der Geschichten zu
finden (aus der Einleitung adaptiert).

(Re-edition; originally published 1869 in Wien; written in German)
