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: Mapping Methods: Approaches to Language Studies (MaMe2014)

The University of Tartu, the Institute of the Estonian Language, and Tallinn University are pleased to host a conference on methods in linguistic research ‒ Mapping Methods: Approaches to Language Studies (MaMe2014) ‒ from 8-10 May 2014 in Tartu, Estonia.

The multitude of linguistic methods in use today raises the concern and need for interdisciplinary communication and collaboration, instead of the traditional relative isolation and autonomy of methodology. It is the aim of this conference to provide a platform for dialogue, where the disciplinary relations between multiple approaches could be evaluated and the possibilities for transfer or integration of methods assessed and discussed.

Plenary Speakers:

Daniel Cohnitz (University of Tartu, Estonia)
Michael Dunn (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, The Netherlands)
Terttu Nevalainen (University of Helsinki, Finland)
Guillaume Thierry (Bangor University, United Kingdom)

All speakers have confirmed their participation.
