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.

FYI: New Journal on Slavic Languages and Cultures


Author: Philip Minlos

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Language Family: Slavic Subgroup

FYI Body: The Institute for Slavic Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow) has launched a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to aspects of Slavic philology and neighbouring fields (traditionally the Institute has been doing research not only on Slavic, but also on Baltic and Balkan philology, as well as looking on Slavic in a broader areal and typological context).

The journal publishes papers in Russian, in Slavic and in the major European languages (such as English and German). We hope that the journal will become a forum of interaction and mutual enrichment of the Russian, East European and Western philological traditions. The journal will come out in two issues per year both in hard copies and online.

The web page of the journal is http://www.slovene.ru/

Two first issues are available online (for free).
