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: Summer School in Formal Linguistics in Brazil

Author: Jessica Arroteia

Linguistic Field(s): Morphology

FYI Body: We are organizing the First Summer School in Formal Linguistics of the South (Evelin), to take place from the 12th to the 18th of January of 2004 at the State University of Campinas, Brazil. The idea of the school is to offer annually courses in the core areas of formal linguistics (Syntax, Semantics, Morphology, Phonology) and related experimental fields, taught by internationally recognized faculty, a a cost that is accessible to the greatest number of South American students. We aim to create a stimulating work environment where all those interested in formal linguistics, regardless of their previous background, can exchange their knowledge and experience in an informal environment. The first edition of the Summer School will be at the University of Campinas, though our hope is that it can be carried out in other South American universities in coming years. At this point 8 courses are planned (introductory and advanced) in syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, and field methods, with other courses to be offered depending on demand. The faculty invited to the summer school this year are: Rajesh Bhatt (UTexas): http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~bhatt/ David Embick (UPENN): http://www.ling.upenn.edu/~embick/home.html Marcelo Ferreira (MIT): nao tem pagina Norvin Richards (MIT): http://web.mit.edu/norvin/www/home.html Cristina Schmitt (MSU): www.msu.edu/~linglang/linguistics/schmitt.htm Cheryl Zoll (MIT): http://web.mit.edu/linguistics/www/zoll.home.html More information on the summer school can be found at the web address a the end of this message. At the end of the Summer School, on the 17th and 18th of January of 2004, a workshop for the presentation of talks on any area of formal linguistics will take place.
