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: From Sound to Gesture (S2G)
Communication as speech, prosody, gestures and signs

Understanding how human communication works requires investigating the complex relations between abstract representations of both sounds and
gestures and their concrete realizations. The study of both spoken and signed language can provide a key to understanding the fascinating
connections between human sounds, gestures and language.

The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars interested in the relationships between different modalities (acoustic, visual) and between
different levels within the same modality (e.g., phonology-phonetics, verbal-nonverbal, prosodic-segmental, etc.).

Invited Speakers:

Karen Emmorey (San Diego State University)
