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: Studies in the Morpho-Syntax of Greek
Edited By: Artemis Alexiadou
Description:

The volume presents a collection of papers of recent generative work on
Modern Greek morpho-syntax. The book is divided into three parts. Part I of
the book deals with argument alternations, Part II with clitics and Part
III with the syntax and semantics of free relatives. The book will be
interesting for scholars working on Greek but also in theoretical
linguistics, as it exemplifies how the study of Greek feeds the development
of generative theory.

The issues discussed in the book are currently highly relevant for the
develop­ment of a satisfactory theory of comparative syntax as well as the
interface between syntax and morphology and syntax and semantics. Thus the
analyses put forth here will contribute to the elaboration of such a theory
and to our understanding of cross-linguistic variation.
