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.

Title: Fundamentos de Fonología y Fonética Española Para Hablantes de Inglés
Subtitle: Manual práctico de español como lengua extranjera
Written By: Eva Núñez Méndez
Series Title: LINCOM Coursebooks in Linguistics 13

El objetivo principal de este volumen consiste en ayudar a los estudiantes
anglohablantes con la pronunciación del español en todas sus variedades
dialectales. Secundariamente, se pretende que el lector aprenda rasgos
fundamentales de la fonética y la fonología española y pueda reconocer,
identificar y reproducir sonidos propios del español. Este libro puede
utilizarse en cursos avanzados de fonética y fonología de la lengua
española, organizados tanto en trimestres como en cuatrimestres.
Se intentará reducir las explicaciones teóricas, dando preponderancia a la
parte práctica de la fonética y la fonología desde un punto de vista
estructuralista, siguiendo un estudio lineal y secuencial de la producción
de los sonidos en el discurso.
Aunque en la sección de Comparaciones se establecen las diferencias entre
el español y el inglés, este texto no se enfoca en la fonética inglesa ni
tampoco en la teoría lingüística general.
Todo el manual está escrito en español para fomentar la adquisición del
vocabulario lingüístico en la lengua meta y para evitar los cambios de
código, contraproducentes a la hora de comprender y asimilar la práctica.
