small/non-affluent to make it interesting for a publisher - and not being a
Czech means that getting a publication grant would mean making the project
over to someone else. (And do I want to give away my competitive
advantage....??) Seriously, one possibility is doing a publication
supported by the new archaeology dept. at the West Bohemian University in
Plzen - where Masters students *must* take German or English language
courses as well.
What I shall certainly be doing, though, is putting up some of the terms,
organised by theme, on a website. This also gives me a possibilty of peer
review, esp. from colleagues in archaeology and museums. The site will be at
www.skriptorium.cz - but don't look now, there's nothing there yet!! Initial
pages are in the pipeline - I am doing them in conjunction with a colleague
who translates heritage-related texts into German.
