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: English-Talyshi Dictionary. A-Z
Subtitle: (250 000 words and word combinations)
Edited By: Farmoni Fakhraddin Aboszoda
URL: http://lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: Languages of the World /Dictionaries 45
Description:

This dictionary is the continuation of the author’s effort of compiling full-
fledged Talyshi dictionaries, which is reflected in previous publications of
Russian-Talyshi Dictionary (in 2 volumes; 82,000 words and word
combinations. Baku: MBM. 2006-2008), Talyshi-Turkic Dictionary (M.:2010;
50 000 words and word combinations), Talyshi-Turkic Dictionary (Baku, 2011.
107,670 words and word combinations) and Russian-Talyshi Dictionary (M.:
2011; 6,000 words and word combiantions). The present dictionary is mainly
based on V.K. Muller’s English-Russian Dictionary (M.: 2009) and consists of
250,000 words and phrases. At the same time, other English language
sources were used during the work.

It is mainly a translation dictionary. In some cases definitions of scientific
and other terms are given. The dictionary has as its purpose to introduce
main global centers of Iranian studies to the Talyshi language.

The process of collecting Talyshi words is not finished yet, thus the author
pursues the goal of continuing his research in this direction, taking into
account forthcoming suggestions and critical notes from scientists and
common readers.
