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.

Program Description: This degree programme offers a specialised masters degree in syntax. The Masters in Research (MRes) combines the advantages of a traditional taught MA programme with a strong research preparation component. As in a traditional specialised masters degree programme, you will attend a variety of high level classes exposing you to current internationally recognised research in linguistics undertaken by members of staff.
Applicants with little background in Linguistics should apply for the existing MA in Linguistics degree programme.

Both the teaching and assessment of the MA in Phonology are strongly research-oriented. The teaching reflects cutting edge developments, with students receiving extensive training in both research methods and the scholarly presentation of ideas. The most important component of the assessment is a dissertation, with the remaining assessments divided between coursework, essays and exams.
Available Financial Aid: Information is available via http://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci/students/prospective/PGT/TMRLINSSYN01.
