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:   Fellow subscribers,

I am working on a graduate degree in ESL at Purdue Univ. I have
recently become interested in ethnography and its utility
in studying ESL program (particularly adult programs). I have
a theoretical discussion by Watson-Gegeo (1988) but have been unable
to locate any more articles or books (theoretical or actual studies
done with this methodology).

Does anyone have any refrences for this combination. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and pardon the double listing on SLART.

Acquisition of punctuation



Hi,

I am researching children's acquisition of (English) punctuation and
would be most grateful if anyone could enlighten me as to any of the
following:-
1) Are there any like-minded souls out there?
2) References concerning the paraphrasing of questions, especially to
subjects who are between 5 and 8 years of age.
3) References about, and examples of, sentences which can be
disambiguated with punctuation.
4) Any interesting uses of punctuation.

Many thanks,
