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: Vorstudien zur Grammatik und zum Wörterbuche der Soqotri-Sprache
Written By: Maximilian Bittner
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia 38

Unter dem Titel Vorstudien zur Grammatik und zum Wörterbuche der
Soqotri-Sprache gedenke ich eine Reihe von Abhandlungen zu
veröffentlichen, welche die auffallendsten und wichtigsten
Erscheinungen der Sprache der Insel Soqotra in grammatischer und
lexikalischer Hinsicht zum Gegenstande haben. Daneben soll diese Band
auch zeigen, wie innig Mehri, Shuri und Soqotri miteinander
zusammenhängen und wie diese drei Mhara-Sprachen, wie ich sie fortan
nennen möchte, vom Arabischen sowohl als auch vom Äthiopischen sich
abscheiden. Zugrunde gelegt ist diesen Vorstudien das in den Bänden
der Südarabischen Expediation der Kaiserlichen Akademie der
Wissenschaften in Wien publizierte Soqotri-Material (Re-edition;
original-ly published 1913/18 in Wien; written in German)
