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: Linguistic Bibliography

The Linguistic Bibliography / Bibliographie Linguistique is the
annual bibliography of linguistics published by the Permanent International
Committee of Linguists under the auspices of the International Council of
Philosophy and Humanistic Studies of UNESCO. With a tradition of more than
fifty years (the first two volumes, covering the years 1939-1947, were
published in 1949-1950), the Linguistic Bibliography is by far the
most comprehensive bibliography in the field. It covers all branches of
linguistics, both theoretical and descriptive, from all geographical areas,
including less known and extinct languages, with particular attention to
the many endangered languages of the world. Up-to-date information is
guaranteed by the collaboration of some forty contributing specialists from
all over the world. With over 15,000 titles arranged according to a
detailed state-of-the-art classification, the Linguistic
remains the standard reference book for every scholar of
language and linguistics. This volume, the first published by Brill, is
accompanied by an extensive author index, and for the first time exhaustive
indices of keywords and of languages have been added.

Linguists and scholars studying the individual languages or language
families. Policy makers and/or NGO's who like to keep abreast with
publications in the field of endangered languages and minority languages.
