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: Handbook of Bilingualism
Subtitle: Psycholinguistic Approaches
Edited By: Judith F. Kroll
Annette M. B. De Groot
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=0195151771
Description:

How is language acquired when infants are exposed to multiple language
input from birth and when adults are required to learn a second language
after early childhood? How do adult bilinguals comprehend and produce words and
sentences when their two languages are potentially always active and in
competition with one another? What are the neural mechanisms that underlie
proficient bilingualism? What are the general consequences of bilingualism
for cognition and for language and thought? This handbook will be essential
reading for cognitive psychologists, linguists, applied linguists, and
educators who wish to better understand the cognitive basis of bilingualism
and the logic of experimental and formal approaches to language science.
