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.

Book Information


Title: Typologie et linguistique contrastive
Subtitle: Théories et applications dans la comparaison des langues
Written By: Anna Sörés
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11518
Series Title: Etudes contrastives. Vol. 9

Cet ouvrage a comme objectif de rendre accessible deux disciplines, la
typologie et la linguistique contrastive aux étudiants qui s'intéressent à
la diversité des langues, en particulier aux étudiants de Français Langue
Etrangère. Les études typologiques offrent un cadre théorique qui permet
d'avoir une vue d'ensemble sur certains problèmes syntaxiques et
morphologiques, comme l'ordre des mots, le caractère universel ou non des
classes de mots, les propriétés des prépositions ou l'emploi des articles.
Les études contrastives présentées portent entre autres sur l'expression
des catégories grammaticales, telles que le genre, le nombre, le cas, le
temps et l'aspect, en français, en hongrois et en allemand. L'approche
translinguistique proposée ici permet de mieux expliquer certains points
grammaticaux qui présentent des difficultés dans la description et dans
l'apprentissage des langues.
