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.

Series Title: Phonology and Phonetics [PP] 4-4
Description:

The present volume contains a selection of the papers and commentaries
which were originally presented at the Tenth Conference of Laboratory
Phonology (LabPhon10) held in Paris from June 29 to July 1, 2006. The theme
of the volume is Variation, Phonetic Detail and Phonological
Representation. It brings together specialists of different fields of
speech research with the goal to discuss the relevance of patterns of
variation and phonetic details on phonological representations and
theories. The topic is addressed from the angles of speech production,
perception, acquisition, speech disorders, and language universals.

The contributions are grouped thematically in five sections, each of which
is commented by invited discussants.

Section I contains the contributions to the special '10th anniversary
session' of the conference which represent in a prototypical way some of
the different research questions that have been at the core of important
debates over the last 20 years in the laboratory phonology community.
Issues of phonological universals and language typology are addressed in
section II. In section III, the notions of variation and phonetic detail
are examined with regard to how they are acquired and dealt with in the
formation of phonological representation in emerging systems. Section IV
focuses on recent work at the crossroad between normal and disordered speech.
