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: Handbücher zur Sprach und Kommunikationswissenschaft / Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science 25 / 2
Description:

The handbook provides an overview of the current status of research. In its
first volume, the handbook begins by presenting the historical background
of the theories in which the conceptions are rooted and then goes on to
deal with the individual elements of the theory in detail (i.e. valency of
the verb, complements vs. supplements, theta-roles, word order). Equal
consideration is given to theoretical and empirical work. The idea of
dependency grammars as well as other conceptions (i.e. word grammar,
lexicase grammar) are presented in detail. The second volume begins with a
comprehensive description of grammatical phenomena as seen from dependency
and valency viewpoints. This is followed by chapters on the application of
dependency and valency concepts in computer-based language processing. The
remaining chapters deal with contrastive lin-guistics, grammaticography,
lexicography, historical linguistics and other areas of linguistic research
in which dependency and valency play a significant role.
