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.

Series Title: GRAMM-R. Etudes de linguistique française / GRAMM-R. Studies of French Linguistics. Vol. 4

Les grands courants de pensée en acquisition des langues se tournent de
façon préférentielle soit vers une approche de l'intervention de
l'enseignant et du concepteur du programme, considérés comme des médiateurs
qui fournissent un maximum d'input en vue de l'organisation et de la
progression de l'interlangue ; soit vers une stratégie globale s'appuyant
sur la construction du sens à partir d'échanges communicatifs.
L'ouvrage, qui fait suite à un premier volume consacré à la place de la
construction du sens en interaction dans l'acquisition de la signification
linguistique, réunit une série d'articles qui s'interrogent, dans une
perspective complémentaire à celle adoptée précédemment, sur la place de
l'intervention, entendue comme explicitation et apprentissage des formes
linguistiques, et notamment grammaticales, dans l'acquisition des
structures langagières, et des compétences linguistique et pragmatique. Les
contributeurs situent ainsi leurs questionnements et leurs propositions
théoriques et pratiques à l'interface de la grammaire (son applicabilité,
les nouveaux discours didactiques sur les structures langagières et les
nouvelles méthodologies de l'intervention des concepteurs et des
enseignants), d'une part, et de l'analyse de l'interaction en classe de
langue étrangère, de la définition et de l'évaluation des compétences
langagières acquises, d'autre part.
