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: Handbook of Pragmatics
Subtitle: 2010 Installment
Edited By: Jan-Ola Östman
Jef Verschueren
Translated By: Eline Versluys
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=HOP%2014
Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics 14
Description:

This encyclopaedia of one of the major fields of language studies is a
continuously updated source of state-of-the-art information for anyone
interested in language use. The IPrA Handbook now contains nearly 5,000
pages. It provides easy access -- for scholars with widely divergent
backgrounds but with convergent interests in the use and functioning of
language -- to the different topics, traditions and methods which together
make up the field of Pragmatics, broadly conceived as “the cognitive,
social and cultural study of language and communication”.

The Handbook of Pragmatics is a unique reference work for researchers: the
main body of the Handbook is produced in loose-leaf format in 3-ring
binders and is accompanied by the bound Manual. The loose-leaf Handbook
forms the basis of the Handbook proper giving an overview of the subfields,
traditions, methodologies and concepts of Pragmatics.

The Handbook is used as a basis for the online version: the Handbook of
Pragmatics Online has been expanded and revised annually since 2003.
Future versions will add further records and will include updates,
rewritings and extensive revisions of already existing records. The
Handbook of Pragmatics Online is available from
www.benjamins.com/online with a free 90-day trial. The Handbook is also
available in combination with the Bibliography of Pragmatics Online
at a discounted rate.
