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: The aim of this panel is to provide a platform for the discussion of recent research relating to language policy and planning of the six living Celtic languages. The recently published results of the 2011 Census for England and Wales have revealed that although the total population of Wales has increased, both the number and the percentage of Welsh speakers have fallen down to 562,000 and 19% respectively. The census results for Ireland and Scotland will be published later this year. Research is welcome on a wide range of topics, including the possible consequences/future challenges in the area of language policy and planning of Welsh, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Manx, Cornish and Breton. We are particularly interested in discussions addressing the complexity of language maintenance and revitalization efforts, the situation of the Celtic languages in urban settings and challenges faced by researchers in the field of minority languages especially.
