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: Variación Sintáctica en Español
Subtitle: Un reto para las teorías de la sintaxis
Edited By: Gabriele Knauer
Valeriano Bellosta von Colbe
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten Vol. 494
Description:

El libro propone una muestra de trabajos de distintos enfoques teóricos y
metodológicos en el estudio de la variación sintáctica contribuyendo a una
reflexión plural sobre la relación dialéctica entre explicación teórica y
descripción empírica. En la primera parte se presentan reflexiones sobre el
uso de corpus en el estudio de la variación sintáctica. El resto del
volumen presenta avances en algunos temas controvertidos. La segunda parte
se concentra sobre el orden de palabras, la estructura informativa y su
realización prosódica. En la tercera parte se toca la codificación variable
de las funciones sintácticas.

The book presents a selection of papers on syntactic variation from
different theoretical and methodological points of view. As such, it
contributes to a process of reflection on the dialectical relationship
between theoretical explanation and empirical description. In the first
part, the authors discuss the use of corpora in syntactic variation
studies. The rest of the book presents some new approaches to a number of
controversial topics. Part Two concentrates on word order, information
structure, and its phonological realization, while Part Three enlarges on
variations in the encoding of syntactic relations.
