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: Deutsche Grammatik - Regeln, Normen, Sprachgebrauch
Edited By: Marek Konopka

Series Title: Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Sprache 2008
Description:

Concern for the German language will always attract large audiences.
Whoever claims that language is going to the dogs can be sure of the
approbation of those who see themselves as linguistically superior.
However, the status of grammatical rules is seldom questioned. It is in
fact by no means clear what can be seen as correct German. How is ‘German’
to be understood? Who determines what should be regarded as correct? The
44th Annual Conference of the Institut für Deutsche Sprache [German
Language Research Institute] endeavoured to help clarify questions such as
these, and took as its topic German grammar in the tension between rules,
standards and language usage.
