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.

storytelling and culture, and multimodality.

The ICSRC is a premier international conference covering interdisciplinary dialogues on semiosis (sign processes). The Semiosis Research
Center (SRC) is a research institute sponsored by Korea Research Foundation and its focus lies in the conceptual understanding of sign
