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.

Linguistic LingField(s):  Not Applicable

Query:   Steven Keiser's recent posting discusses the usability of minidiscs in
recording acoustic data. I recently decided against using minidisc
technology in the development of a corpus of spoken language because
it seemed like transcription would be difficult (since there doesn't
seem to be such a thing as a minidisc dictaphone transcriber). Does
anyone have a way around this problem?

Thanks in advance,
Lynne Murphy
