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.

Robert Englegretson pointed out two mistakes in my review of solid-state

1) The edirol R-1 has a 110/220V adaptor.
2) In his words: ''The Edirol does in fact have a level meter. Pressing
the 'display' button while in record mode toggles between it and the time

Robert confirms that the R1 does not produce adequate volume level. This
problem can be solved by using an external mic preamp.
