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.

FYI: Peter Lang Oxford Call for Book Proposals


Author: Laurel Plapp

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

FYI Body: Peter Lang Oxford invites proposals for the book series
Contemporary Studies in Descriptive Linguistics

http://www.peterlang.com?csdl

This series provides an outlet for academic monographs which offer a recent and original contribution to linguistics and which are within the descriptive tradition. While the monographs demonstrate their debt to contemporary linguistic thought, the series does not impose limitations in terms of methodology or genre, and does not support a particular linguistic school. Rather the series welcomes new and innovative research that contributes to furthering the understanding of the description of language. The topics of the monographs are scholarly and represent the cutting edge for their particular fields, but are also accessible to researchers outside the specific disciplines.


Contemporary Studies in Descriptive Linguistics is based at the Department of English, University of Buckingham.

Edited by:

Dr Graeme Davis, Research Fellow in the Department of English, University of Buckingham, UK, and Associate Lecturer, the Open University, UK, and

Karl A. Bernhardt, Research Fellow in the Department of English, University of Buckingham, UK, and English Language Consultant with both Trinity College, London and the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry International Qualifications


Studies in Historical Linguistics:

http://www.peterlang.com?shl

Studies in Historical Linguistics brings together work which utilises the comparative method of language study. Topics include the examination of language change over time, the genetic classification of language, lexicography, dialectology and etymology. Pronunciation, lexis, morphology and syntax are examined within the framework of historical linguistics. Both synchronic and diachronic approaches are used so that language is examined both at one time and across time.

Historical Linguistics is still a young area of academic study, but it has its foundations in one of the oldest – philology. This series recognises both the seminal importance of philology, and the recent development through the conceptual framework provided by linguistic science.
