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: Die Übereinstimmung der Tempus- und Modalcharaktere in den ural-altaischen Sprachen
Written By: Anton Boller
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia

Der stoffliche Zusammenhang der ural-altaischen Sprachen ist gegenwärtig in
so ausgedehntem Umfange blossgelegt und nachgewiesen, dass man zu seiner
Erklärung notwendig auf die Annahme eines gemeinsamen Ursprunges der
genannten Sprachen gedrängt wird. Wenn ich nun in vorliegendem Aufsatze es
unternehme die Tempus- und Moduscharaktere der einzelnen hierher gehörigen
Sprachen (u.a. Mandźu, Mongolisch, Kalmückisch, Türkisch-tatarisch, die
samojedischen Sprachen, Suomi und Magyarisch) einer vergleichenden Analyse
zu unterziehen, um ihre Identität nachzuweisen, so bestimmen mich hierzu
Gründe, welche den Aufsatz „über Wurzelsuffixe in den ural-altaischen
Sprachen“ veranlassten (aus der Einleitung)
