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 Colleagues,
I am trying to gather enough material for a meta-analysis of studies in
SLA that have investigated implicit learning, incidental learning, or
learning without awareness. I am asking for two things:

1) any references for studies published in non-English language
journals, or in regional journals or conference proceedings that are not
well archived.

2) any studies that were not published, for any reason. these can
include those that did not show significant effects (I am particularly
interested in these), PhD dissertations, and/or particularly well done
MA theses. I am happy to receive reports, raw (but organized) data, as
well as just the names and email addresses of individuals who may
have done some research along these lines, and also anything else
you might think is helpful but that I have failed to mention.

I am interested in the entire scope of this research, from artificial and
semi-artificial grammar studies to the incidental learning of words,
gestures, etc. (of course different types of research will be modeled
separately). I will happily post to the list the annotated bibliography that
comes out of the responses.
