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: Anaphores pronominales et nominales: Etudes pragma-sémantiques
Written By: Walter De Mulder
Series Title: Faux Titre 216

This volume presents a series of studies which analyze the anaphoric relationship in French from a non-traditional angle. Concentrating on indirect anaphora and bridging phenomena rather than on "classical" anaphoric expressions whose referent does not change, they analyze the anaphoric use of expressions such as I'un / l'autre, le premier / le second and le même rather than the well-known pronouns and noun phrases. Furthermore, they look at the anaphorical functioning of expressions such as en or ça in order to get a better grasp of their nature and use rather than having it the other way around. In doing so, these studies exemplify some of the new approaches which are adopted in current research on anaphora and .for this reason they will appeal to all those who are interested in the semantic structure of the anaphoric and referential expressions and in the different ways in which these expressions are used to construct coherent texts and discourses, in combination with pragmatic and cognitive mechanisms and strategies.

Les études réunies dans ce volume présentent des approches de la relation anaphorique en français qui s'écartent toutes dans une certaine mesure des recherches "traditionnelles". Elles s'intéressent ainsi aux anaphores indirectes ou non fidèles, plutôt qu'aux anaphores fidèles, analysent le fonctionnement anaphorique d'expressions comme l'un / l'autre, le premier / le second et le même, plutôt que des pronoms et syntagmes nominaux, ou exploitent le comportement anaphorique d'expressions comme en et ça pour mieux comprendre leur nature et leur emploi, plutôt que l'inverse. Elles reflètent ainsi les nouveaux chemins que tente d'emprunter la recherche actuelle sur les anaphores et pourront de ce fait intéresser tous ceux qui s'occupent de l'analyse de la structure sémantique des expressions anaphoriques et référentielles, et qui étudient la façon dont celles-ci participent, en combinaison avec des mécanismes pragmatiques et cognitifs, à la construction de textes et de discours.
