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.

Subject Language(s):  English

Query:   Dear all,

I would like to kindly ask you for help with my PhD project. I'm doing research on the processing of affective language in bilingualism from the angle of neuroscience. I have already created the stimuli for the study and need to have it rated by monolingual English speakers. The norming study consists of 2 separate questionnaires (they differ in stimuli), so in order to avoid confusion I'll first post the first part of the norming study. Ideally, I would like to have 20 respondents for each of the questionnaire parts, but naturally each contribution is HIGHLY appreciated. Thank you so much for your help and your comments (these are priceless!).


In return I will be more than happy to help you in any way and/or keep you updated with the results of the research

All the best,

p.s. you will need no more than 20 minutes to fill in the questionnaire.
