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: Speaking Hebrew
Subtitle: Studies in the Spoken Language and in Linguistic Variation in Israel
Edited By: Shlomo Izre'el
Margalit Mendelson
URL: http://www.tau.ac.il/humanities/semitic/te'udaabstracts.html
Description:

The subject of this volume being offered to scholars of the Hebrew language and its devotees is spoken Hebrew. Its nucleus is a meeting of scholars that occurred in February 2000 at
Emory University in Atlanta (Georgia, USA). Papers were delivered by team members of The
Corpus of Spoken Israeli Hebrew (CoSIH) and other scholars invited for this purpose, and questions were discussed pertaining to the compilation and design of the corpus. At the initiative of Yair Hoffman, editor of the Teuda series, other scholars engaged in the research of the Hebrew language were asked to contribute from their research to this volume.
These articles, to a large extent, supplement the writings of the CoSIH workshop seminar, because they show from various and diverse aspects the pressing need for compiling a corpus of spoken Israeli Hebrew.
