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: Cahiers du Collège d'Europe / College of Europe Studies. Vol. 10
Description:

La question linguistique au sein de l'Union européenne est de nature
transversale. Le présent ouvrage, qui reproduit les actes d'un colloque
organisé par le Collège d'Europe et l'Organisation internationale de la
francophonie, l'analyse en premier lieu sous l'angle de la pratique
politique et juridique de l'Union européenne.
Il s'agit alors de satisfaire tant aux contraintes imposées par le respect
du « principe » de multilinguisme qu'à celles relatives au fonctionnement
efficace d'un système politico-administratif supranational sophistiqué.
Une mise en lumière historique, politique, économique, et linguistique
permet ensuite de mieux saisir les enjeux de cette pratique institutionnelle.
