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: Czech in Generative Grammar
Edited By: Mojmír Dočekal
Petr Karlík
Jana Zmrzlíková
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Slavic Linguistics 28
Description:

This book is the first to analyse the Czech language within a generative
framework. In twelve studies, this work offers an analysis of the Czech
language, which possesses a rich morphological system and a relatively free
word order. It suggests new hypotheses and modifications of existing
influential hypotheses based on Czech data.

The book addresses classic phenomena which have been central to generative
grammar for all of its existence, such as reflexive verb forms,
infinitives, wh-questions, mixed categories, and others. It also touches on
problems whose descriptive analysis are connected with Prague School
structuralism and only later have received generativists' attention, e.g.
topicalisation and theme/rheme word order.
