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.

Query:   Dear linguists,

Does anyone out there know how I could possibly get hold of a copy of P.
Master's Phd dissertation from 1987, UCLA: ''A crosslinguistic interlanguage
analysis of the acquisition of the English article system''. In all my
references it says it is 'unpublished'. I think it sounds very interesting
for parts of my own dissertation work. I'm writing about Swedish learners'
written English and one part of it is to investigate the errors in article

I'd be very grateful for any ideas on where and how to get this
dissertation or any (more recent) similar works on the English articles.
Please answer to my e-mail Pia.Kohlmyr@eng.gu.se.
