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: The 19th Conference of the International Association for World Englishes (IAWE) will be held November 16-18, 2013, at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, USA.

The theme of the conference is ‘World Englishes in the Multilingual World.’ From the beginning of World Englishes studies, multilingualism has always been an important part of the field, whether in focusing on the influences of other languages on the forms and functions of English, in examining the multilingual creativity in literary work in Englishes, or in exploring issues concerning the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. This year’s theme encourages us not only to continue research and engage in discussion on English in a multilingual community, but also to critically examine the relationship between English and other languages while contextualizing our work in today’s complex global network of languages.
