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: Die Geheimsprachen bei den Slaven
Written By: Vatroslav Jagic
Series Title: LINCOM Slavica 01
Description:

Die leichtesten und einfachsten Mittel, deren Anwendung den Zweck der
Unkenntlichkeit verfolgt, besteht darin, dass das übliche Wort, dessen
Flexionsfähigkeit durch alle Formen der Deklination oder Konjugation
unangetastet bleiben muss, bei Anwendung bestimmter Lautverän-derungen
entstellt, d.h. maskiert wird. Diese Lautveränderungen werden in der Regel
nicht vereinzelt, sondern bei grösserer Anzahl von Beispielen angewendet,
wodurch diesen Gebilden der Laune der Typus einer gewissen Regel-mässigkeit
aufgeprägt wird, deren Erkenntniss die richtige Erklärung einzelner Fälle
erleichert.

Es muss aber vorausgeschickt werden, dass dieser Band einer gleichartigen
Entfaltung nur die Geheimsprachen Russlands umfasst, weshalb in diesem
Kapitel nur dieser Analyse bezüglich ihrer Markierungselemente unterzogen
werden. Ich verstehe darunter die Sprache der Ofenen, der verschiedenen
Handwerker und der Bettler und Bettelsänger (siehe Kap. V, 40-41).
(Re-edition; written in German).
