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: Dependency in Linguistic Description
Edited By: Alain Polguère
Igor A. Mel’čuk
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20111
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 111
Description:

The book covers three major topics crucial for contemporary syntactic
research. Firstly, it offers a sketch of a general theory of dependency in
natural language. Different types of linguistic dependencies are
distinguished (semantic, syntactic, and morphological), the criteria for
their recognition are formulated, and all possible combinations are
discussed in some detail. Secondly, it demonstrates the application of the
general theory in two specific domains: establishing the system of
Surface-Syntactic Relations in French and linear positioning of clitics in
Serbian. Thirdly, it presents a formal sketch of Head-Driven
Phrase-Structure Grammar modelled in terms of syntactic dependencies.
