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: Introduzione alla Linguistica Latina
Written By: Shaligram Shukla
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Indo-European Linguistics 08

Il volume Introduzione alla linguistica latina si propone di collocare la lingua latina nel panorama delle lingue indeuropee e di seguirne lo sviluppo storico, dall'indeuropeo ricostruito fino al passaggio dal latino alle lingue romanze. La trattazione discute i principali problemi che lo studio della lingua latina in prospettiva diacronica presenta: per ogni problema trattato viene esposta la storia dela discussione, trattati criticamente i principali tentativi di soluzione proposti, con ampio riferimento alle fonti bibliografiche. Il volume può essere utilizzato anche come manuale per lo studio universitario, grazie a note, osservazioni e tabelle che forniscono un quadro sistematico della materia trattata. Il volume tiene conto sia dei risultati raggiunti dalle trattazioni "classiche" della linguistica indeuropea sia delle riflessione e delle proposte delle moderne scuole di linguistica.
