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.

The Year's Work in Modern Language Studies
French Studies: Language and Linguistics

The Year’s Work in Modern Language Studies (YWMLS) is an annual critical bibliography of scholarly work in Romance, Celtic, Germanic and Slavonic studies, and is published by Maney Publishing on behalf of the Modern Humanities Research Association. Each volume includes a survey of French Studies: Language and Linguistics, compiled since 2008 by Paul Rowlett (University of Salford, UK). The purpose of YWMLS is to give a survey of published work in the field. Work on language teaching, learning and acquisition, as well as psycholinguistics, is outside the scope of YWMLS, as are dictionaries unless they make important contributions to lexicography. Doctoral theses, bibliographies and preprints available on personal websites are similarly excluded.

The 2012 survey is now being prepared. In order to maximize the comprehensiveness of the survey, authors of published works dated 2012 which fall within the scope of YWMLS are invited to forward either a hard copy offprint to Professor Paul Rowlett, School of Humanities, Languages & Social Sciences, University of Salford, Salford M5 4WT, United Kingdom or a .doc or .pdf file to P.A.Rowlett@salford.ac.uk. Items from 2010 or 2011 which were inadvertently missed from the relevant survey are also welcome. The 2008 survey is available here: http://usir.salford.ac.uk/2752/; preliminary versions of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 surveys are available on request.
