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: Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus
Subtitle: Lexique latin médiéval - Medieval Latin Dictionary - Mittellateinisches Wörterbuch
Written By: J.F. Niermeyer
C. van de Kieft
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=10611
Description:

Niermeyer's Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus is a highly practical lexicon,
providing researchers, teaching staff and students in the field of Medieval
History with concise, essential information.

This new edition is still the “compendious lexicon for rapid information”
envisaged by Niermeyer, but current entries and definitions have been
revised and new entries have been added. Furthermore, the dictionary is now
enhanced with German definitions and therefore provides French, English and
German translations for every entry of a Medieval Latin concept. All
entries are contextualized with relevant text passages.
In view of the new entries and additional German definitions, the new
edition is bound into two durable hardback volumes.

The Niermeyer Lexicon Minus has proved to be invaluable to medievalists for
almost 50 years and is an indispensable working tool for academic libraries.

The revised Lexicon is published simultaneously by Brill, Leiden and
Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft (WBG), Darmstadt (WBG only distributes
to its members).
