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.

Query Details

Query Subject:   PALM - a journal?
Author:   Simone Mueller
Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   Can anybody help me with the following reference?

Hays, P.R. ''Discourse markers and L2 acquisition''. PALM (7) 1992

I assume that PALM is a journal, but our library has not been able
to find the reference. If PALM is an acronym, what does it stand
for? Or does anybody know P.R. Hays or his/her article?

I appreciate any hint!

Address Forms in Classroom

I am a Ph.D. student conducting a study on the use of address forms between
teachers and students/pupils and that among students/pupils in classroom. I
have done some studies in Japanese, and I would like to know the examples
from classrooms involving other languages (particularly different varieties
of English).

I would like to ask you several questions by e-mail involving the use of
address forms by teachers and students (which would take no longer than 10
minutes to complete) on the above topic. Anyone who can volunteer to help me
with the survey, please contact me at y.taniguchi@reading.ac.uk

I would also appreciate it if anyone who is working on the same topic to
exchange information.

Thank you very much.
