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: Naratives teribes
Written By: J. Diego Quesada
URL: http://www.lincom-europa.com
Series Title: Languages of the World/Text Collections 20
Description:

Este libro se enmarca dentro del proyecto Aspects of Teribe Grammar, auspiciado por el Consejo de Investigacion en Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades de Canada (SSHRC por sus siglas en ingles), cuyo fin consiste en la documentacion de la lengua chibcha de Panama, el teribe, y su descripcion estructural. Ademas de varios articulos sobre aspectos varios de la estructura gramatical del teribe, ya se ha publicado una gramatica de la lengua (LINCOM EUROPA, LSNAL 36, 2000 A
Grammar of Teribe).

Este libro pues representa la realizacion de una tarea mas del proceso de documentacion y descripcion de esta lengua. De hecho la recopilacion de estas narraciones debe verse como complemento de la gramatica ya publicada. El libro contiene 18 narraciones en lengua teribe, las cuales versan sobre temas varios de la cultura teribe; aparecen en tres versiones: teribe, glosa interlineal, y espanol, reflejando los tres tipos de lectores a los que el autor se dirige: nativohablantes del teribe, linguistas profesionales, e hispanohablantes.

Luego de una breve presentacion de aspectos generales de la lengua y cultura teribe (Parte I), se presentan las 18 narraciones (Parte II) que componen el cuerpo del texto. Cabe destacar, como dato curioso, que cuatro de las historias fueron contadas por la Altima hablante monolingue del teribe, la senora Maragarita Calixto.
