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 Specific Language Impairment
1-3 October 2014
Madrid

Plenary Speaker: Jeannette Schaeffer (Universiteit van Amsterdam)

Specific Language Impairment (SLI) is a disorder characterized by slow language development, without other cognitive or neurological deficits. This workshop intends to discuss different topics about the diagnosis and causes of Specific Language Impairment. One of the goals of the workshop is to supply the phonological, lexical, morphosyntactic or pragmatic abilities of children with SLI. A main problem in SLI is to provide a differential diagnosis which can distinguish SLI from other syndromes like autism, receptive language disorder or attention deficit disorder. In fact, so far the criteria to diagnose SLI has been mainly by exclusion. In addition, another topic that it’s going to be included is the causes of SLI: genetic, environmental, linguistic difficulties, cognitive factors, learning disabilities. We also encourage new findings after applying methodologies like event related potentials, fMRI, eye tracking or MEG.
