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.

Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 291
Description:

The conference series Going Romance is the major European discussion forum
for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages, where ideas about
language and linguistics and about Romance languages are put in an
interactive perspective, giving space to both universality and
Romance-internal variation. The current volume features a selection of 18
articles (out of 28) that were presented during the 19th meeting at Utrecht
University, December 8-10, 2005. Included in this volume are four papers
that were presented by invited speakers: Belletti, Delais-Roussarie &
Rialland, Notley & Van der Linden & Hulk, and Ordóñez; these reflect both
issues discussed in the general session as well as themes of the workshop
on acquisition. A number of reknown Romance linguists (Saltarelli, di
Sciullo, Zubizarreta) also contributed to the volume. In general,
contributions bear on a variety of topics in the field of morphology,
syntax, semantics and pragmatics and include the perspective from acquisition.
