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: ‘A Germanic Sandwich 2013’ will be held at the University of Leuven from 11-12 January 2013, as the fourth edition of a series of conferences in which Dutch is compared with its West Germanic neighbours, English and German. The first one took place in Berlin to commemorate the 1956 appearance of the seminal publication ‘Nederlands tussen Duits en Engels’ (‘Dutch between German and English’), a study by the renowned Dutch linguist C.B. van Haeringen. Later editions of the conference were held at Sheffield (2008) and Oldenburg (2010). The conferences have spawned a number of special issues, either as a book volume (Hüning et al. 2006) or as special issues of journals (Vismans et al. 2010; Ruigendijk et al. in prep.). See also http://www.shef.ac.uk/dutch/pastevents#sandwich and Van der Wouden, forthc.).
