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: The Theory of Functional Grammar
Written By: Simon C Dik
Edited By: Kees Hengeveld
Series Title: Functional Grammar Series 20 & 21
Description:

Simon C. Dik's Theory of Functional Grammar is a systematic treatment and exposition by one of its most distinguished exponents, and compulsory reading for any student of Functional Grammar. Part 1, the first edition of which appeared in 1989, has been revised and updated and is now released together with the publication of part 2. Part 1 sets out the basic principles underlying the theory of Functional Grammar, and discusses the structure of simple (that is, non-derived, non-complex) clauses. The volume does not presuppose any antecedent knowledge of Functional Grammar, nor does it otherwise depend on any sources for a proper understanding of its contents. Part 2, presupposing the contents of part 2, contains a discussion of complex and derived construction types. This volume can thus be used for advanced study of Functional Grammar by those who already have a reasonable knowledge of the basic framework of the theory.
