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: The Language and Intercultural Communication Reader
Edited By: Zhu Hua
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415549134/
Description:

Language is key to understanding culture, and culture is an essential part of
studying language. This reader focuses on the interplay between Language
and Intercultural Communication.

Reflecting the international nature of the field, this reader covers a wide range
of language and cultural contexts: Arabic, Chinese, English (British,
American, Australian and South African), Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Samoan
and Spanish. Divided into six parts, it covers: Culture, language and thought;
Cultural approaches to discourse and pragmatics; Communication patterns
across cultures; Teaching and learning cultural variations of language use;
Interculturality and Intercultural Communication in professional contexts. With
twenty two readings by eminent authorities in the field as well as cutting-edge
materials representing current developments, the book explores the breadth
and depth of the subject as well as providing an essential overview for both
students and researchers.

Each part begins with a clear and comprehensive introduction, and is
enhanced by discussion questions, study activities and further reading
sections. Alongside a comprehensive Resource List, detailing important
reference books, journals, organisations and websites and an annotated
Glossary of key terms, the final section offers advice on how to carry out
research in Language and Intercultural Communication.
