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.

Query:   Dear Linguists,

as a part of my MA thesis on psycholinguistics, I conduct a survey on how native speakers of English perceive relatedness/unrelatedness of exchanges between other people. It is really surprising on which basis we link utterances and find implications in dialogues that are not directly related.

However, I have a problem - I study in Poland where the access to the native speakers of English is very limited.

Please, take part in my survey, which will help me to finish my project:

http://www.instant.ly/s/NfLMN .

The survey is designed for people up to 50 years old due to some changes in language processing at the later age.

Feel free to forward the link to anyone who can be interested in taking part in my study.

Thank you a lot in advance!

Marta
