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 Editorial Team at Metaphor Bibliography

Author: Paul Peranteau

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis

FYI Body: John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce a new editorial
team at the online Bibliography of Metaphor and Metonymy
The new team is headed by Editors: Antonio Barcelona Sánchez
(Cordoba, Spain) and Francisco J. Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez (La Rioja,

The online Bibliography of Metaphor and Metonymy offers a research
tool for anyone interested in figurative language. Metaphor and
metonymy play an important role in language use in everyday life and
communication. Their study is by nature interdisciplinary. This
instrument is therefore relevant to a broad audience, including (but not
limited to) those working in linguistics, anthropology, cross-cultural
studies, communication studies, lexicology, pragmatics and discourse,
rhetoric, stylistics, artificial intelligence, philosophy, translation studies,
literary studies and cognitive sciences.

MetBib strives to cover the whole range of publications on the topic,
including articles, books, and electronic resources, from a wide variety
of countries and languages. Each publication has a full bibliographic
description and keywords, and many have abstracts. MetBib now also
provides CrossRef DOIs, where available, for easier linking to source
materials (NB. access to sources is not included and depends on
whether you/your library subscribes to a source). The bibliography is
updated annually. The current release mainly includes data from 1990
onwards, but it also includes around 600 entries from before this date.
In total, MetBib contains approx. 11,000 records.

This online bibliography has a range of options for easy searching and
smooth navigation through an advanced and stylized application, with
which users of Benjamins' Translation Studies Bibliography and
Bibliography of Pragmatics are already familiar.

The bibliography is available on a subscription basis, with stand-alone
or site licenses. For more information, follow the link ''Subscription &
Price'' in the top navigation bar.
