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.

Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 38
Description:

This volume originates from the editors' interest in one of the most
relevant fields of research these days: Intercultural and International
Business Communication. The needs of the business world to communicate
effectively at an international level in order to overcome language
differences have proved to be a fascinating topic for many scholars.
International business discourse is culturally-situated and therefore
context-dependent, and all three – discourse, culture and context – play a
key role in the communication process. The present contributions analyse
this topic under the perspective of theory, research and teaching.
Different scholars have offered their views on the subject, presenting
contributions on different areas related to business communication all over
the world.
