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: A Detailed Analysis of Moroccan Secret Languages. Vol II
Written By: Nasser Berjaoui
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Handbooks in Linguistics 25
Description:

The aim of this book (which contains two volumes) is to analyze fourteen
Moroccan Arabic (MA) “secret languages” (“SLs”). These spread in the
Moroccan regions of Azrou, Dar El Guedari, Kénitra, Khémisset and Souk
Larbaa (cf. the relevant maps in the map index, Vol. II). In these works,
which are follow-ups of ten previous books on MA “SLs”, we will tackle the
secretizing of numerous types of MA structures with a consideration of
prefixless words, prefixed affirmative forms, prefixed negated items,
miscellaneous functional words, and syntactic structures. The fourteen “SLs”
are classified in terms of their secretizing mechanisms: seven Inversion
“SLs”, four Substitution-Pseudo-Suffixation “SLs”, two Pseudo-Infixation
“SLs” and one Re-Patterning “SL”.
