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: Das Problem der sprachlichen Elementarverwandtschaft
Edited By: Bohumil Vykypěl
Vít Boček
Series Title: Travaux linguistiques de Brno 07

Der vorliegende Band enthält Texte zur sog. sprachlichen
Elementarverwandtschaft, einer der Manifestationen der neben der
genetischen und der Arealverwandtschaft stehenden dritten grundlegenden
Form der Nähe von Sprachen. Obwohl die Elementarverwandtschaft und –
insbesondere vom operativen Gesichtspunkt aus – ihre Unterscheidung von
genetischen und konvergenziellen Korrespondenzen zwischen Sprachen ein
wichtiges Instrument der historisch-vergleichenden Sprachwissenschaft
darstellen, wurde diesem Thema bisher kaum eine systematische
Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet.
