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: Conversation Analysis and Language for Specific Purposes
Edited By: Hugo Bowles
Paul Seedhouse
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11469
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication, Volume 63
Description:

Research into the relationship between conversation analysis (CA) and
different areas of applied linguistics is increasing rapidly. The aim of
this volume is to show how conversation analysis can make a significant
contribution to the teaching of spoken language for specific purposes (LSP)
and to provide a firm foundation for future research and practice in this
area. The first-ever collection in this area, the volume provides a
theoretical and methodological framework for applying CA to LSP, as well as
a series of illustrations of practical applications of CA in specific
domains including interpreting, journalism, service encounters, academic
discourse and the language classroom. The chapters in this collection are
all written by CA practitioners with experience in the teaching of language
for specific purposes and will appeal to researchers and students in
applied linguistics and the social sciences, particularly those working in
LSP teaching and teacher training.
