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.

Full Title: Evidential Systems in Tibetan Languages

Location: Yangon, Myanmar
Start Date: 27-May-2014 - 27-May-2014

Meeting Description: The evidential systems of Tibetan languages, in particular Lhasa dialect, have played an important role in the typological discussion of evidential systems generally. However, this typological literature is often disconnected from the results of detailed documentation of the relevant phenomena in the dialectological literature; that much of this literature is written in German and Japanese has served as one obstacle. This panel/workshop solicits descriptive presentations on Tibetan evidential systems across time and space as well as presentations that reexamine what Tibetan can offer for the typological study of evidential systems. It is intended to publish proceedings as a book on Tibetan evidential systems.
