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: iCog Network and iCogS Database

Author: Ryan Doran

Linguistic Field(s): Psycholinguistics
Cognitive Science

FYI Body: The iCog network has just launched iCogS to help postgraduates and early-career researchers working in the different disciplines of cognitive science get in touch with each other, exchange knowledge, and initiate collaborations. Researchers can create a profile detailing their research interests, current research and whether they are interested in collaborating with other researchers, which disciplines they are interested in collaborating with, the topic or question they wish to investigate collaboratively, and the methodologies they wish to employ (if known). Even for those not currently seeking collaborators, having an iCogS profile is a good way to advertise your research to other researchers in the cognitive science community.

Visit http://i-cog.com/icogs to create your profile and search the iCogS database for other researchers.

The iCog network acknowledges the generous support of the Mind Association, Aristotelian Society, Analysis Trust, Guarantors of Brain, Language and Cognition (Cambridge University Press), and the Departments of Philosophy and Psychology, Faculty of Science, and the Hang Seng Centre for Cognitive Studies at the University of Sheffield.
