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: “Workshop on Cognition, Grammar, and Corpora”

Organized by the Finnish Cognitive Linguistics Association (FiCLA) at the 41st Finnish Conference of Linguistics in Turku, May 10, 2014

Due to its usage-based nature, cognitive linguistics has always been theoretically and methodologically committed to studying language in its actual real-life contexts. One way of doing this is to look at how linguistic phenomena are realized in various corpora, and therefore various corpus-based, corpus-oriented or corpus-related studies have been essential in cognitive linguistic research since the early days of the discipline. The aim of the workshop is to discuss the various questions that corpora raise in the study of grammatical phenomena from the cognitive perspective. The language of the workshop is English, and the workshop will be attended by one of the plenary speakers of the conference, Professor Laura Janda from the University of Tromsø, Norway.
