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: Phonetic Interpretation
Subtitle: Papers in Laboratory Phonology VI
Edited By: John Local

Rosalind Temple
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/9780521824026
Series Title: Papers in Laboratory Phonology
Description:

Phonetic Interpretation presents innovative work from four core areas:
phonological representations and the lexicon, phonetic interpretation and
phrasal structure, phonetic interpretation and syllable structure, and
phonology and natural speech production. Written by major figures in the
fields of phonetics, phonology and speech perception, the chapters in this
volume use a wide range of laboratory and instrumental techniques to
analyse the production and perception of speech, their aim being to explore
the relationship between the sounds of speech and the linguistic
organisation that lies behind that. The chapters present evidence of the
lively intellectual engagement of laboratory phonology practitioners with
the complexities and richness of human language. The book continues the
tradition of the series, Papers in Laboratory Phonology, by bringing
linguistic theory to bear on an essential problem of linguistics: the
relationship between mental models and the physical nature of speech.
