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: The Morphology of Dutch
Written By: Geert Booij
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/019829980X.html
Description:

This book supplies the need for an authoritative account of the morphology of Dutch in English and at the same time will make an important contribution to current theoretical discussions of word formation; the interactions between morphology, syntax, semantics, and phonology; and morphological change. The author is the leading scholar in the field. "The Morphology of Dutch is an excellent blend of descriptive detail and theoretical insight. Booij provides a clear and readable overview of the facts whilst at the same time succinctly pinpointing phenomena which are of particular theoretical importance. This book will be of immense value to all those interested either in Dutch linguistics or in theoretical morphology."--Andrew Spencer, Professor of Linguistics, University of Essex "Geert Booij here makes accessible to the general linguist the work that he and his colleagues have been doing on Dutch morphology for twenty-five years. This book is a gold mine, both for those who know the subject andfor those who are new to it. As an up-to-date overview of the morphology of a single major language, it is unsurpassed."--Mark Aronoff, Professor of Linguistics, Stony Brook
