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: Polish
Written By: Ronald F. Feldstein
Steven Franks
Series Title: Languages of the World/Materials 393
Description:

Note: This is the 2nd printing of a previously announced book.

A reference grammar which covers the essential points of Polish phonology,
morphology, and syntax. Written to be usable by the general reader, not
just the linguistics professional. Phonological information is presented
from a combined phonogical and orthographical perspective, in order to
introduce the Polish spelling system and its phonological values within a
single chapter. Includes Polish minimal pairs and comparisons to English.
Morphophonemic alternations are then set up, followed by individual
sections on nominal, pronominal, adjectival, and verbal morphology. Verbal
morphology is organized on the basis of a new application of the
Jakobsonian one-stem system. Individual sections deal with specific
semantic topics unfamiliar to English speakers, including verbal aspect,
motion verbs, and numerals.

The syntax section deals with general descriptive problems, but should also
be of interest to more sophisticated users. Topics covered include issues
of case and government, the use of pronominal clitics, the formation of
questions and other sentence types, verbal agreement patterns, and verbal
categories such as voice, mood, and aspect.
