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: Interaction of Morphology and Syntax
Subtitle: Case studies in Afroasiatic
Edited By: Zygmunt Frajzyngier
Erin Shay
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TSL%2075
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 75
Description:

The present volume deals with hitherto unexplored issues on the
interaction of morphology and syntax. These selected and invited
papers mainly concern Cushitic and Chadic languages, the least-
described members of the Afroasiatic family. Three papers in the
volume explore one or more typological characteristics across an
entire language family or branch, while others focus on one or two
languages within a family and the implications of their structures for
the family, the phylum, or linguistic typology as a whole. The diversity
of topics addressed within the present volume reflects the great
diversity of language structures and functions within the Afroasiatic
phylum.
