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: Twenty-First Century Psycholinguistics
Subtitle: Four Cornerstones
Edited By: Anne Cutler
Description:

Psycholinguistics is an interdisciplinary field, and hence relationships
are at its heart. First and foremost is the relationship between its two
parent disciplines, psychology and linguistics, a relationship which has
changed and advanced over the half century of the field's independent
existence. At the beginning of the 21st Century, psycholinguistics forms
part of the rapidly developing enterprise known as cognitive neuroscience,
in which the relationship between biology and behavior plays a central
role. Psycholinguistics is about language in communication, so that the
relationship between language production and comprehension has always been
important, and as psycholinguistics is an experimental discipline, it is
likewise essential to find the right relationship between model and experiment.

This book focuses in turn on each of these four cornerstone relationships:
Psychology and Linguistics, Biology and Behavior, Production and
Comprehension, and Model and Experiment. The authors are from different
disciplinary backgrounds, but share a commitment to clarify the ways that
their research illuminates the essential nature of the psycholinguistic
enterprise.
