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 All:

I am a Tunisian MA student and I am currently working on my MA memoir from
a corpus based analytical perspective. More precisely I am trying to
analyse the reporting techniques used in a corpus of Tunisian legal cases.

I need to know whether there are similar works done on Arabic texts or
corpora, or any research articles or books dealing with the techniques of
reporting in Arabic. If there are any, I would be so much grateful if I
could have some of the references.

With best regards!
