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.

Linguistic LingField(s):  Discipline of Linguistics

Query:   The editors of a number of journals in Linguistics, including Language,
have developed a Unified Style Sheet for publications in our field (see
http://www.lsadc.org/info/style-sheet.cfm). Use of this style is
encouraged, and if it is widely adopted, that could considerably facilitate
the preparation of manuscripts. In support of that, it would be useful to
have software support for it in popular document preparation systems. The
one I care about is LaTeX(/BibTeX), and before I try to re-invent the wheel
(also remembering how much fun it is to make sense of the weird syntax of
.bst files), I wonder if someone has already produced a BibTeX style file
implementing this style.

If something useful turns up, I will post a summary to LinguistList, and if
possible make the .bst file available through my own web site. If I learn
that there exists similar support for other systems, I'll try to see if all
such files could be made available through the LL Computer tools page
and/or the LSA Web page.
