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: Categorial Grammar
Subtitle: Logical Syntax, Semantics, and Processing
Written By: Glynn France Morrill
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199589869.do
Description:

This book provides a state-of-the-art introduction to categorial grammar, a
type of formal grammar which analyses expressions as functions or according
to a function-argument relationship. The book's focus is on linguistic,
computational, and psycholinguistic aspects of logical categorial grammar,
i.e. enriched Lambek Calculus. Glyn Morrill opens with the history and
notation of Lambek Calculus and its application to syntax, semantics, and
processing. Successive chapters extend the grammar to a number of
significant syntactic and semantic properties of natural language. The
final part applies Morrill's account to several current issues in
processing and parsing, considered from both a psychological and a
computational perspective. The book offers a rigorous and thoughtful study
of one of the main lines of research in the formal and mathematical theory
of grammar, and will be suitable for students of linguistics and cognitive
science from advanced undergraduate level upwards.
