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: 27ème colloque du CeRLiCO, Université de Limoges, 7 et 8 juin 2013
Du réel à l'irréel : 2 - Langues, discours et représentations

Le langage permet de mettre en relation une réalité avec un substitut de cette réalité, d'après A. Culioli (Variations sur la linguistique, 2002, p. 51). Si le réel est fait de représentations de ce qui est, et l’irréel, au sens le plus large, de représentations de ce qui n’est pas, comment et de quoi se construisent-ils l’un et l’autre et l’un vis-à-vis de l’autre ? Le colloque de Limoges se propose d'explorer la cohabitation, voire la confrontation au sein d'un même discours entre la représentation qu'on se fait de la réalité et de son altérité, autrement dit entre un effectif et un fictif.

27th Cerlico Conference, Limoges University, 7-8 June 2013
From Realis to Irrealis in Languages, Discourse and Representations

With language, we can connect a real state of affairs to substitutes for this reality, according to A. Culioli (Variations sur la linguistique, 2002, p. 51). If realis consists in representing what is actually the case, and irrealis in the broadest possible sense consists in representing what is not the case, one can wonder how they are constructed both in relation to each other and in opposition to each other. The Limoges conference aims to explore how our representations of reality and their otherness either cohabit or are confronted within the same utterance.
