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):  Computational Linguistics

Query:   Hello! I'm writing an interactive TGREP GUI/tutorial using Perl/Tk for a (extended) class assignment. I thought that rather than making up sample queries out of the blue, it would be better to ask fellow linguists what research they are really using TGREP for. It would help me greatly if anyone would be willing to send me some TGREP queries (I'll take any, from simple to complex!) along with their intended target (i.e., the TGREP command and what you were hoping to find). In return, I'll be happy to send you my GUI (likely with a request to test it... sneaky devil) and acknowledge your contribution. Thanks so much!
