Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Series Title: EUROSLA Yearbook 11
Description:

The annual conference of the European Second Language Association provides
an opportunity for the presentation of second language research with a
genuinely European flavour. The theoretical perspectives adopted are wide-
ranging and may fall within traditions overlooked elsewhere. Moreover, the
studies presented are largely multi-lingual and cross-cultural, as befits the
make-up of modern-day Europe. At the same time, the work demonstrates
sophisticated awareness of scholarly insights from around the world. The
EUROSLA yearbook presents a selection each year of the very best research
from the annual conference. Submissions are reviewed and professionally
edited, and only those of the highest quality are selected. Contributions are in
English.
