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.

Meeting Description: International Conference on Tocharian Manuscripts and Silk Road Culture

Since early 2011 the University of Vienna has been hosting an online edition project of Tocharian manuscripts funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund. Research on Tocharian is interdisciplinary and international per se, and much depends on cooperation with neighboring disciplines such as Buddhist studies and other philologies of Central Asian languages. The conference is therefore dedicated to the study of Tocharian texts and Tocharian culture in all its aspects, and open to transdisciplinary approaches.
