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: Tense, aspect and mood in first and second language acquisition.
Edited By: Emmanuelle Labeau
Inès Saddour
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=CHRONOS+24
Series Title: Cahiers Chronos 24
Description:

Tense, aspect and mood have attracted much attention in the areas of both
first and second language acquisition, but scholars in the two disciplines
often fail to learn from each other. Western European languages have also
been the focus of most studies, but there would be lessons to learn from less
studied languages.

This volume offers new insights on tense, aspect and mood by bringing
together the findings of first and second language acquisition, and comparing
child and adult, monolingual and multilingual learning processes that are
approached from various theoretical points of view. In addition, it spans over
a wide range of less studied languages (Bulgarian, Hebrew, Korean, Russian),
and Western European languages are studied from new angles.
