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: This workshop will be held in conjunction with the XLVIII Congresso Internazionale della Societa' di Linguistica Italiana.

Both theoretical and clinical linguistics have recently given much attention to the comparative study of language acquisition in different
circumstances. On the one hand, data from acquisition in different circumstances can help formulate and shape theoretical
descriptions of some aspects of the grammar which only emerge in a comparative study where critical conditions are compared; on the
other hand, the investigation of linguistic phenomena in different circumstances can help describe different linguistic profiles and
identify specific clinical markers for language disorders in different clinical populations.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss recent results from acquisition studies with typically developing monolingual children, typically
developing multilingual children, deaf children, language-impaired mono- and/or multilingual children and adults, children and adults with
autism, children with developmental dyslexia and other learning disorders.
