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: Address(ing) (Pro)Nouns. Sociolinguistics and Grammar of Terms of Address
Workshop at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

Organizer: Horst Simon
Organizing team: Tanja Ackermann, Edgar Baumgärtner, Christian Forche, Christian Zimmer

In recent years, it has become difficult to follow the multitude of projects and approaches in the field of address term research. Now it is time to bring together researchers studying different languages and working in different frameworks, such as sociolinguistics, pragmatics and grammatical description.

In general, the main question to be answered is: Who uses which form of address when, and why? While older approaches often assumed rather static and wholesale systems of address terms, it seems to become clear that models capturing the dynamicity of address systems are more appropriate to describe the linguistic facts.
