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: 6th International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory

The Meaning-Text Theory is a holistic linguistic theory characterized in particular by the central position of the lexicon, the primacy of semantics, the importance of the communicative structure (= information structure), and the reliance on dependencies at all levels. MTT has been extensively developed over the last four decades with respect to its coverage of linguistic phenomena and application in a variety of research fields - in particular natural language processing. After MTT ‘03 in Paris, MTT ‘05 in Moscow, MTT ‘07 in Klagenfurt, MTT ‘09 in Montreal, MTT ‘11 in Barcelona, this conference is the sixth in a series that aims at bringing together researchers working on MTT and related frameworks and their implementation in the natural language processing applications.

The main unifying ideas for MTT ‘13 are interaction and semantic motivation: interaction of different linguistic units, interaction of different levels of language, and semantic motivation of syntax, semantic motivation of collocations.

The conference will be organized in conjunction with the International Conference on Dependency Linguistics (http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/project/depling13) to take place immediately before MTT ‘13 (August 27-30). Participation in both conferences is warmly welcome.
