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.

Meeting Description: Linguistics has diversified into an array of subfields, each of which exemplifies an important facet of the science. However, the need for diversity and cooperation is ever-present. This conference aims to showcase linguistic experiences that have had positive results when incorporating two or more subfields in order to solve a problem or answer a research question. Whether it is the marriage of formal and functional theory or a joint venture between separate disciplines, working together provides researchers with a way to handle data and analyze findings in new and innovative ways. This conference wishes to exhibit the harmony between different methods and perspectives.
