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 Language and Cognition
Edited By: Jordan Zlatev
Mats Andrén
Marlene Johansson Falck
Carita Lundmark
Description:

Using a plethora of concepts, theories and methods, the theoretical and
empirical studies described in this volume are united in their approach of
treating language not in isolation (e.g. as a “module”), but as both based
on structures and processes of cognition, and at the same time as affecting
the human mind. The book is organized in 7 parts, corresponding to some of
the major fields in language research today: (a) linguistic meta-theory and
general issues, (b) lexical meaning, (c) metaphor, (d) grammar, (e)
pragmatics, (f) gesture and bodily communication, and (g) historical
linguistics. At the same time, the non-modular approach to language adopted
by the authors is reflected by the fact that there are no strict boundaries
between the parts. Thus, the book is a valuable contribution to the growing
interdisciplinary field of Language and Cognition.
