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.

Book Information


Title: Le Proverbe Entre Langues Et Cultures
Subtitle: Une étude de linguistique confrontative allemand/français/bété
Written By: Jean-Philippe Claver Zouogbo
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11667
Series Title: Etudes contrastives. Vol. 10

Ce travail est une contribution importante au fondement linguistique des
relations Nord-Sud de notre monde globalisé. L'auteur réussit une
comparaison originale entre les concepts et les images transmis par les
proverbes de l'allemand, du français et du bété. La proximité conceptuelle
entre les cultures surprend autant que la diversité des métaphores ancrées
dans les milieux respectifs. Des théories sémantiques interprétatives et
cognitivistes ainsi que des méthodologies lexicographiques actuelles y
trouvent des applications adéquates, livrant des résultats bien organisés.
Les études interculturelles en bénéficient pour leur plus grand rayonnement.

Contenu :

Langues et cultures - Linguistique générale et comparée - Phraséologie et
parémiologie - Ethnolinguistique - Lexicographie - Sémantique cognitive -
Didactique de l'allemand - Parémiodidactique.
