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 Body: Greetings, Linguists!

The March 2013 issue of Speculative Grammarian—the premier scholarly journal featuring research in the neglected field of satirical linguistics—is now available online for your browsing pleasure.

The editors and publishers of Speculative Grammarian are pleased to announce that another issue of our venerable journal is now available. This issue features many excellent articles, including a startling admission concerning optimality theory, a probing inquiry into the absence of linguistics on television, a profound rumination on degenerative grammar and linguistic degradation, and the continued restoration of things you didn’t know you didn’t know—along with the usual collection of letters from our readers, breaking news, poetry, puzzles, advertisements, and more...

Next time (April 2013), we will most probably have another all-new issue of Speculative Grammarian, depending on how the negotiations go.

Enjoy!
