Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: The conference aims to encourage discussion between linguists and school teachers to investigate how formal linguistics can be applied to the teaching of any natural language (modern languages, classical languages and dialects). The main purpose is to stimulate a profitable exchange between formal approaches to linguistic facts and the way in which they are usually dealt with in school practice. A further aim of the conference is to elaborate new teaching proposals on the basis of linguistic reflection.

Camilla Bettoni (Università di Verona)
Maria Giuseppa Lo Duca (Università degli Studi di Padova)
Nicoletta Penello (school teacher at IIS 'Tito Lucrezio Caro', Cittadella - PD)
