Featured Linguist!

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: <I>Ici</I> et <I>maintenant</I>.
Edited By: Marcel Vuillaume
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=Chronos+20
Series Title: Cahiers Chronos 20

Le titre de ce numéro des Cahiers Chronos fait allusion à la notion
d’origo forgée par Karl Bühler et à sa thèse selon laquelle
ici et maintenant définissent, respectivement pour l’espace
et pour le temps, le point zéro de tout repérage déictique et sont donc,
avec le pronom je, les embrayeurs (indexicaux) par excellence. Cette
théorie, qui a connu un succès considérable auprès des linguistes, n’a pas
eu que des effets positifs, car, en s’imposant comme une sorte de postulat,
elle a bridé la réflexion sur les indexicaux et plus particulièrement sur
ici et maintenant, sur leur statut et sur leur conditions
d’emploi. Mais aujourd’hui, on prend heureusement conscience des lacunes
que présente la recherche dans ce domaine, et l’ambition du présent volume
est justement de participer à l'effort collectif entrepris pour les
combler. Il s’adresse donc à tous les linguistes qui s’intéressent aux
indexicaux et aux spécificités de leur fonctionnement.
