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: The Tbilisi Symposium on Logic Language and Computation
Written By: Jonathan Ginzburg
Carl M Vogel
Jean-Jacques Lévy
Zurab Khasidashvili
Description:

This volume brings together papers from linguists, logicians and computer scientists from thirteen countries (Armenia, Denmark, France, Georgia, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Poland, Spain, Sweden, UK and USA). This collection has two main aims: first to serve as a catalyst for new interdisciplinary developments in language, logic and computation; and second, to introduce new ideas from the expanded European academic community. Spanning a wide range of disciplines, the papers included in this volume cover such topics as formal semantics of natural language, dynamic semantics, channel theory, formal syntax of natural language, formal language theory, corpus-based methods in computational linguistics, computational semantics, syntactic and semantic aspects of lambda-calculus, non-classical logics, and a fundamental problem in predicate logic. The papers that appear in this volume have been selected from those originally presented at the first Tbilisi Symposium on Language, Logic and Computation that took place in Gudauri, the Republic of Georgia, in October 1995.
