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.

Technology in Linguistics Classes

In the push to technologize classrooms, I would like information from
people who have successfully integrated information technology into
their linguistic classes. I am especially interested in technology
that may have made teaching more efficient and may have allowed better
