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: Translation Studies
Edited By: Mona Baker
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415344227
Series Title: Critical Concepts in Linguistics
Description:

Translation Studies has emerged as a thriving interdisciplinary and
international area of scholarship. Its rapid growth has been accompanied by
diverse forms of translation research and commentary, most falling within,
or crossing, traditional academic disciplines such as linguistics, literary
criticism, philosophy, anthropology, and, more recently, cultural studies.

This new four-volume collection from Routledge brings together foundational
and more recent, cutting-edge contributions to the field. The collection is
both retrospective and forward-looking, making sense of the past as well as
providing pointers towards the future.

Fully indexed and with a comprehensive introduction, Translation Studies is
an essential work of reference for use by both scholar and student as a
vital one-stop research resource.
