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: Transcribing Talk and Interaction
Subtitle: Issues in the representation of communication data
Written By: Christopher Joseph Jenks
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/z.165
Description:

Interest in transcript-based research has grown significantly in recent years.
Alongside this growth has been an increase in awareness of the empirical
utility of naturalistic research on language use in interaction. However, a
quick scan of the literature reveals that very few transcription books have
been published in the past three decades. This is an astonishing fact given
that there are perhaps hundreds of books published on spoken discourse
analysis. This book aims to narrow this gap by providing an introduction to
the theories and practices related to transcribing communication data. The
book is intended for students with little to no knowledge of transcription work
and/or instructors responsible for teaching introductory courses on transcript-
based research. Readers who are learning or teaching discourse/conversation
analysis or similar analytic methods of investigation will find this book
particularly helpful.

The author: Christopher Jenks has many years of experience teaching
transcription work and analysis of communication data to postgraduate
students and researchers. In addition to running workshops and giving
presentations on similar topics at universities around the world, he has
published widely in top international journals and has numerous other
forthcoming publications.
