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 Historical Latin Syntax
Subtitle: Volume 1: Syntax of the Sentence
Edited By: Philip Baldi
Pierluigi Cuzzolin
URL: http://degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110190823-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 180.1
Description:

New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax is a methodologically uniform
multi-authored work that traces main currents in the syntactic history of
Latin.

Relying primarily on a functional-typological methodology, in which
structural considerations of the traditional type are combined in a
complementary and balanced way with functional and typological principles,
the book approaches historical Latin syntax from a non-traditional
perspective, investigating diachronic phenomena primarily from their
discourse function as revealed in Latin texts.
