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.

Description:

New Yearbook

With the Yearbook for German Language History, the German-language academic
publishing scene sees the establishment of a periodical that dedicates
itself to the contents, methods and objects of language history and their
relevance in the context of present-day German Studies, and as such
provides a forum for current research into language history. The conception
of the Yearbook is derived principally from the aims and purposes of the
“Association for German Language History,” and it serves as the
Association’s principal publication.
