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: Yearbook of Morphology 2005
Edited By: Geert Booij
Jaap van Marle
URL: http://www.springer.com/1-4020-4065-2
Series Title: Yearbook of Morphology
Description:

The only international periodical devoted to linguistic morphology. Widely
considered to be the best series of publications on morphology at the
international level, and is referred to very frequently in linguistic
publications. A revival of interest in morphology has occurred during
recent years. The periodical Yearbook of Morphology, published since 1988,
has proven to be an eminent support for this upswing of morphological
research, and has shown that morphology is central to present-day
linguistic theorizing.

In the Yearbook of Morphology 2005 a number of important theoretical issues
are discussed: the role of inflectional paradigms in morphological
analysis, the differences between words and affixes, and the adequacy of
competing models of word structure.

In addition, the role of phonological factors in shaping complex words is
discussed. Evidence for particular positions defended in this volume is
taken from a wide variety of languages. This volume is of interest to those
working in theoretical, descriptive and historical linguistics,
morphologists, phonologists, computational linguists, and psycholinguists
