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: Cross-Disciplinary Issues in Compounding
Edited By: Sergio Scalise
Irene Vogel
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20311
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 311
Description:

The study of compounds is currently at the center of attention in many
areas of both theoretical and applied linguistics. This volume brings
together contributions by experts involved in a wide range of such areas,
based on a large number of diverse languages – spoken and signed. The fact
that compound constructions are at the interface of the various components
of language – morphology, syntax, phonology, and semantics – makes them
ideal testing grounds for models of grammatical architecture, as seen in a
number of these chapters.

The breadth and depth of the coverage of topics, as well as the unified
bibliography, make this volume a basic reference source for those
interested in current theoretical as well as experimental approaches to
compounding, and thus to theoretical linguists as well as psycholinguists
and researchers in related fields of cognitive science.
