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: In recent years, linguistic research on emotions has been given new impetus. Studies both in French and in English have focussed on the definition of the concept of 'emotion' and on its syntactic, pragmatic and cognitive properties within various frameworks. Building on previous research on emotions - for instance, Balibar-Mrabti 1995 ; Plantin, Doury & Traverso 2000 ; Harkins & Wierzbicka 2001 ; Grossmann & Tutin 2005 ; Novakova & Tutin 2009 ; Plantin 2011 ; Wilson 2012 ; Baider & Cislaru 2013 ; Chuquet, Nita & Valetopoulos 2013 - this conference aims at bringing new insights on the study of emotions from the perspective of monolingual, multilingual and learner corpora.

The conference will explore four key topics:

1. Expressing emotions in monolingual and multilingual corpora
2. Expressing emotions in learner corpora
3. Expressing emotions in second-language text-books and second-language teaching
4. Emotions in dictionaries

As suggested by the title of this conference, we aim at encouraging linguistic exchange by bringing together scholars working within various approaches and conceptual frameworks in different languages.

Invited Speakers:

Cristelle Cavalla (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3)
Agnès Celle (Université Paris-Diderot)
Jean-Marc Dewaele (University of London)
