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.

Meeting Description: Linguistic Snapshots: Language and Cognition 2
1-2 March 2013

The second conference aims to continue the good traditions formulated during the initial one:

- Openness to all theoretical approaches and methods
- Promoting advanced as well as initial research
- Refreshing the scholarly perspective by reference to the latest linguistic trends
- Multi-linguistic approach - analyses of different languages

The central theme for this year is ‘Extension and its Limits.’ Since nothing in language is constant, extension seems a process that is worth studying in its own rights. Albeit complex and elusive, we believe that facing it may lead to numerous fascinating questions about its regularities, directions, possible limits, as well as methodologies of describing it.

Conference Venue and Fee:

The venue will take place in Sosnowiec, 5 Grota-Roweckiego, Poland. The conference fee is 100 euros/400 PLN and it includes conference materials, coffee breaks, and conference dinner.


A reviewed monograph will be published out of selected articles. More detailed information will follow.

Our distinguished guest this year is professor Klaus-Uwe Panther from the University of Hamburg, Germany.
