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.

Meeting Description: A full-day workshop at PACLIC 2012 (The 26th Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information, and Computation), will be held on Wednesday, 7 November 2012, at Bali, Indonesia.

Since its first framework proposed by James Pustejovsky (1991), the Generative Lexicon (GL) theory has become one of the most influential linguistic semantic theories. Subsequent developments have also been presented from linguistic, philosophical, and computational perspectives. In this first Workshop on The Generative Lexicon for Asian Languages (GLAL), we would like to bring together diverse contributions to explore the generative approaches to the lexicon, and put more focus on the implications for Asian languages.
