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: New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics
Edited By: Nikolaos Lavidas
Elissavet Nouchoutidou
Marietta Sionti
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

"New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics" is a selection of papers presenting
some of the ongoing research in Greek Linguistics. The contributions in
this volume, which have their origin in the 4th Athens Postgraduate
Conference in Linguistics, refer to various theoretical frameworks and
cover a wide range of topics (from phonology of dialects to acquisition of
syntax); however, they share the common reference to Greek and Theoretical
Linguistics. The second common feature is a tendency to investigate already
known problems using new methods, considering different factors from
previous research or introducing innovative ideas. The volume is dedicated
to Professor Gaberell Drachman and Professor Angeliki Malikouti-Drachman as
a small token of gratitude for their ceaseless presence and their
contribution to Theoretical Linguistics, to Greek Linguistics and to
postgraduate studies in Linguistics in Greece.

This volume is of particular interest to linguists working on various areas
of Greek Linguistics, especially those who would like to keep up with
ongoing research. It presents an opportunity to see the application of
linguistic theory in Greek and the current comparative research.
