Featured Linguist!

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 critical 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 2011 survey is now being prepared. In order to maximize the
comprehensiveness of the survey, authors of published works dated
2011 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 2009 or 2010 which were inadvertently missed from the
relevant survey are also welcome; preliminary versions of the 2008,
2009 and 2010 surveys are available on request.
