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: Electronic Discourse in Language Learning and Language Teaching
Edited By: Lee B. Abraham
Lawrence Williams
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26LT%2025
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 25
Description:

New technologies are constantly transforming traditional notions of
language use and literacy in online communication environments. While
previous research has provided a foundation for understanding the use of
new technologies in instructed second language environments, few studies
have investigated new literacies and electronic discourse beyond the
classroom setting. This volume seeks to address this gap by providing
corpus-based and empirical studies of electronic discourse analyzing social
and linguistic variation as well as communicative practices in chat,
discussion forums, blogs, and podcasts. Several chapters also examine the
assessment and integration of new literacies. This volume will serve as a
valuable resource for researchers, teachers, and students interested in
exploring electronic discourse and new literacies in language learning and
teaching.
