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: New Perspectives on Narrative and Multimodality
Edited By: Ruth Elizabeth Page
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415995177
Series Title: Routledge Studies in Multimodality
Description:

The contributors in this collection question what kinds of relationships
hold between narrative studies and the recently established field of
multimodality, evaluate how we might develop an analytical vocabulary which
recognizes that stories do not consist of words alone, and demonstrate the
ways in which multimodality brings into fresh focus the embodied nature of
narrative production and processing. Engaging with a spectrum of multimodal
storytelling, from ‘low tech’ examples encompassing face-to-face stories,
comic books, printed literature, through to opera, film adaptation and
television documentary, stretching beyond to narratives that employ new
media such as hypertext, performance art, and interactive museum guides,
this volume examines the interplay of semiotic codes (visual, oral, aural,
haptic, physiological) within each case under scrutiny, thereby exposing
both points of commonality and difference in the range of multimodal
narrative experiences.
