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: Broca's Region
Edited By: Yosef Grodzinsky
Description:

As Broca's region is such a historically significant concept and rich area,
this book contains a collection of classic and recent-yet-classic papers.
Along with cutting-edge science, Grodzinsky and Amunts want to remind
readers of the celebrated past from which much can be learned. The
historical chapters include the first two papers written by Paul Broca, as
well some work by two of the most important neurologists of the nineteenth
century, Ludwig Lichtheim and John Hughlings-Jackson. Also included are
parts of twentieth century papers by Korbinian Brodmann, Roman Jakobson,
Norman Geschwind, Harold Goodglass, and Jay Mohr. Because this book both
reflects the state of the art in Broca's-region research and contains a
tribute to its celebrated past, it will be a valuable resource for student
and professional researchers. It will also stimulate further
interdisciplinary research, which is a significant contribution, as the
project called "Broca's region," encompassing the study of brain/language
relations, is far from finished.
