Query:   Sehr geehrte Kollegen,

Ich erforsche den Eindeutschungsgrad des Begriffs "Sibirien" in der Lexik
und Grammatik des Deutschen und bin dafür auf die Hilfe deutscher
Muttersprachler angewiesen. Wenn Sie einige Personen deutscher Abstammung
kennen, die längere Zeit in Sibirien, Russland gelebt oder nach 1941 in
sowjetischer Kriegsgefangenschaft verbracht haben oder Sie auch selbst zu
eine/r dieser Personengruppen gehören, bitte ich Sie mir unter
elmikadoro@gmx.net Bescheid zu geben, damit ich Ihnen einen Fragebogen
zusenden kann.

Vielen Dank im Voraus,

Artjom Abroskin, Staatsuniversität zu Kemerovo
My research has to deal with the assimilation grade of the notion
"Siberia" in German vocabulary and grammar and thereby I am in need of
native German speakers' assistance. If you could help me contact me please
at elmikadoro@gmx.net, so I could send you a questionnaire.

Thank you so much in advance,

Artjom Abroskin, Kemerovo University, Siberia
