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.

Title: Canonical Forms in Prosodic Morphology
Written By: Laura J. Downing
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199286393
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This book considers the interaction of morphological and phonological
determinants of linguistic form and the degree to which one determines the
other. It considers the operation of canonical forms, the invariant
syllabic shapes of morphemes and the defining characteristic of prosodic
morphology. Dr Downing presents an original theory which she tests on data
from a wide variety of languages. Her book will be of central interest to
scholars and advanced students of phonology and morphology, and of
linguistic theory more generally.
