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: Lingüística Iberoamericana, 41

La excepción (anomalía o irregularidad frente a analogía o regla) en la
gramática (y, específicamente, en la española) se constituye como un
aspecto esencial y constitutivo de cualquier sistema lingüístico sometido a
norma y codificación. Desde el ámbito de la investigación ha sido y es un
tema de controversia y discusión científica notable desde las más
divergentes tradiciones teóricas. En este sentido, el presente volumen
aborda el problema de la excepción desde las perspectivas sincrónica e
historiográfica y desarrolla los siguientes temas de interés: cuestiones
relativas a la tradición del concepto de “excepción”, de su tratamiento y
descripción; la terminología pertinente, así como los criterios
considerados por los gramáticos en general o en determinados autores en
concreto; y, finalmente, las diferentes posiciones teóricas defendidas a lo
largo de la historia de la gramática española.
