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,

I greatly appreciate your help with my previous surveys. I would like to invite you to take another questionnaire, which helps me to prepare materials for the experiment, which is a part of my MA thesis. To ensure the obtained results are not influences by your excessive knowledge of the subject, I can only say my MA thesis is on cognitive linguistics and compares Polish and English languages. However, if you want to know more, feel free to e-mail me after taking the survey. I will be more than happy to answer all your questions.

Here is the link to the survey: http://www.instant.ly/s/6S8qP . It takes less than 5 minutes so it won't occupy a lot of your time.

Thank you a lot in advance.

I hope to be able to pay you back!
