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: Linguistic Modeling of Information and Markup Languages
Subtitle: Contributions to Language Technology
Edited By: Andreas Witt
Dieter Metzing
URL: http://www.springer.com/book/978-90-481-3330-7
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

This book addresses the interests of a large community of researchers in
the fields of XML-based annotation techniques and corpus-based language
technology. It covers the most significant recent developments in this
field, from multi-layered mark-up and standards to theoretical formalisms
to applications. The contributions are based on research projects at
international level in text technology, computational linguistics,
hypertext modeling and in the domain of standards and tools for language
resources. Core topics are: strategies for multi-layered document modeling
and processing, mark-up at different levels for textual resources, and
text-technological information modeling.

The sections of the book offer an exhaustive coverage of many of the
current topics in the fields concerned, especially: Multi-layered Markup;
Markup Languages and Language Resources; Markup and Text Types; Markup
Languages and Hypertext; Markup and Formalization.

The book may be seen as a contribution to very ambitious goals, connected
to the development of an ‘Annotation Science’ (a term recently coined by
Nancy Ide), for example the interoperability of different types of
linguistic and textual resources, of corpora and processing tools, as well
as the development of methods and annotation techniques applicable to
multiple modalities and languages.
