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.

Subtitle: Son histoire et sa famille dans les dictionnaires de langue française. Étude lexicale, théorique et historique
Written By: Jean Nicolas De Surmont

Series Title: Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 353
Description:

The terminology of genres of song has aroused the interest of
musicologists, medievalists, and ethnomusicologists who hope with it to
achieve a better understanding of their fields. The analysis presented here
of the French vocabulary connected with chanson starts from a literary
genre referred to by the word chanson. A corpus of 500 dictionaries and 900
studies and essays is used to examine the word chanson and its associated
word family from their beginnings in Old French up to the modern French
language.

La terminologie des genres chansonniers a suscité l’intérêt des
musicologues, médiévistes, ethnomusicologues soucieux d’une meilleure
compréhension de la production chansonnière. L’étude du vocabulaire
chansonnier français met en relief l’existence d’un genre littéraire plus
ou moins bref dénommé par le mot chanson. C’est du mot chanson et de sa
famille lexicale, depuis ses origines en ancien français jusqu’à nos jours
en français moderne, dont il sera question. Entre 450 et 500 dictionnaires
de langue et thématique et 900 œuvres littéraires (essais sur la chanson,
etc.) constituent le corpus.
