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: GSCP 2014 is the international conference of the Gruppo di Studi sulla Comunicazione Parlata, a research group of the Società di Linguistica Italiana. Ever since its inception in Naples (Italy) in 2003, GSCP has been one of the main European forums for the discussion of the interdisciplinary area related to the study of spoken communication in all its aspects. GSCP is a rich opportunity for the advancement of scholarship not only in linguistic studies related to spoken language but also in interfacing disciplines and new technologies (acoustic engineering, language pathology, speech therapy, artificial intelligence, etc).

GSCP conferences cater to researchers interested in spoken communication with focuses ranging from the linguistic aspects of speech and the pragmatics of interaction to the biological bases of communication including speech pathology, automatic treatment of speech data and resources for the study of speech (such as the creation of corpora, analysis, synthesis and automatic tagging resources).

The ninth GSCP will take place at the Stockholm University and Uppsala University. It aims to promote interest in spoken language studies in Romance Languages, a field of studies that has a strong tradition at Uppsala University and is one of the leading research areas at Stockholm University.
