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: De un discurso al otro. Rasgos discursivos de varios subgéneros.
Written By: Heraclia Castellón Alcalá
Series Title: Linguistics Edition 74

Este trabajo se plantea como un acercamiento a las formas en que la
argumentación se manifiesta en diferentes subgéneros; se observa cómo se
construye en cada caso el texto y cómo operan en él las estrategias
argumentativas. Se analizan ejemplos concretos de textos periodísticos
(editoriales), parlamentarios (un discurso en las Cortes) y
jurídico-administrativos (dos disposiciones ministeriales). Se delimita
primero el marco teórico desde el cual considerar el mecanismo de la
argumentación en cada uno de estos tres subgéneros discursivos, para
después adentrarnos en el análisis de los textos.

Además, se presentan otros dos subgéneros que proceden de los medios
audiovisuales de masas, la copla o canción y los monólogos; ambos productos
discursivos ofrecen unas notas propias que definen su identidad genérica.
Entre los fenómenos a los que se atiende está su disposición estructural,
como también las propiedades caracterizadoras de su enunciación, lo que los
convierte en productos comunicativos determinados, con particulares
perspectivas y requerimientos expresivos.
