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.

immatériel. Dédié à mettre en avant les spécificités culturelles et la
philosophie du peuple marocain, il reflète les valeurs d’une société au
quotidien. Ce travail est articulé autour de 6 composantes
importantes permettant la compréhension des 180 proverbes que

la transcription phonétique, la traduction mot-à-mot, la traduction
générale, le commentaire, les mots-clés et les mots thèmes.

marocaines, l’ouvrage est donc confronté à la mise en adéquation de

les proverbes, qui font partie intégrante de l’identité propre des
