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: Grammaire de la langue d'oïl
Subtitle: ou Grammaire des dialectes français aux XIIe et XIIIe siécles suivie d'un glossaire
Written By: G. F. Burguy
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 128
Description:

On donne le nom de langue d'oïl aux divers langages parlés en France, au
nord de la Loire, dans une partie de la Belgique et de la Suisse, depuis le
IX e jusqu'au XIV e siècle. Ces divers langages ou dialectes, qui vivent
encore plus ou moins dénaturés dans nos patois, sont la vraie source du
français. Tout l'ont enrichi de leur dépouilles; et, à ce titre, leur étude
et indispensable à qui vent approfondir la langue littérature. Malgré cette
importance de la langue d'oïl, la France ne possède encore une ouvrage
complet, propre à faire connaître les lois qui la régissaient. C'est une
lacune dans notre littérature grammatical que je me suis proposé de
remplir, sauf a m'égarer quelquefois au milieu de ce large espace plein de
difficultés (de la préface).

Table des matieres: dérivation, de l'article, du substantif, de l'adjectif,
des noms de nombre, du pronom, du verbe (re-edition, originally published
1853, Berlin, written in French).
