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: Yearbook of Phraseology 2010
Edited By: Koenraad Kuiper
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110222616-1
Description:

In the past 30 years, phraseology has established itself as an internationally
recognized branch of linguistics. It is concerned with word combinations of
varying extent and type, and different degrees of fixedness. These include
collocations, phrasal lexemes, idioms, or formulaic expressions. Word
combinations are ubiquitous in language and constitute a significant resource
for communication. Their study is of interest to many other subdisciplines of
linguistics and even to other disciplines, throwing light on the make-up and
modes of creation of complex 'building blocks' of language, as well as on the
way in which language functions.

The linguistic description of word combinations and their use - from both a
synchronic and a diachronic perspective - constitutes a challenge for
empirical researchers and raises questions that theoretical accounts of
language and language use will need to answer.

It is hoped that the "Yearbook of Phraseology" will make a significant
contribution to published research in phraseology, and facilitate dialogue
between Continental and English-speaking scholars.

The "Yearbook of Phraseology" is a fully international publication.
Contributions are subject to peer review. The yearbook publishes book
reviews in English. It is sponsored by the "European Society of Phraseology
(Europhras)". Consequently contributions to the yearbook will be accepted in
the four working languages of the Society: English, French, German and
Spanish. Manuscripts will be accepted in any subfield of phraseology.
