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: Experiments at the Interfaces
Edited By: Jeffrey T Runner
URL: http://books.emeraldinsight.com/display.asp?K=9781780523743&cur=GBP&sf1=kword_index&sort=sort_date%2
Series Title: Syntax and Semantics
Description:

While experimental data collection has been common in psycholinguistics for
some time, only relatively recently have experimental methods been employed
to collect data for research in formal linguistics. Experimental methods
can be particularly useful for investigating phenomena at the interfaces of
the components of grammar, where the sources of multiple types of
information need to be carefully controlled. Experiments at the Interfaces,
edited by Jeffrey T. Runner from the University of Rochester, brings
together recent experimental research examining a variety of issues within
syntax and semantics, and their interfaces with each other and with other
domains of language. The volume showcases a wide range of experimental
methods and illustrates how they can be applied to critical questions
relevant to formal linguistics.
