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.

Description:

Writing in English, German, or French, more than 300 authors provide a
historical description of the beginnings and of the early and subsequent
development of thinking about language and languages within the relevant
historical context. The gradually emerging institutions concerned with the
study, organisation, documentation, and distribution are considered as well
as those dealing with the utilisation of language related knowledge.
Special emphasis has been placed on related disciplines, such as rhetoric,
the philosophy of language, cognitive psychology, logic and neurological
science.

"… a convincing collection of papers of high quality, impeccably edited and
printed, and a pleasure to read."
