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.

Subtitle: Das Verhältnis von Theorie, Empirie und Methode
Edited By: Csaba Földes
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/interkulturelle-linguistik-im-aufbruch.html
Series Title: Beiträge zur Interkulturellen Germanistik, Vol. 3

Der Band reflektiert die zunehmende Kultursensitivität linguistischer
Forschungen und setzt sich mit Aspekten des interkulturellen Paradigmas
auseinander. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Forschungsorientierung ›Interkulturelle
Linguistik‹ (IL). diese wird hier als ein Ensemble von Forschungskonzepten und
-orientierungen verstanden, die als eine ihrer Hauptaufgaben nicht bloße
Unterschiede zwischen (zwei) Sprachen thematisieren, sondern das Besondere
in interkulturellen Kontexten (mit mindestens zwei Sprachen) untersuchen; d.h.
das, was weder in der einen noch in der anderen Sprachkultur alleine existiert,
sondern nur durch eine Interaktion zweier oder mehrerer Sprach- bzw.
Kommunikationskulturen entsteht. die Beiträge sollen zum einen durch ihre
konzepttheoretischen Denkmodelle, zum anderen aufgrund ihrer empirischen
Forschungsergebnisse zur Etablierung einer Interkulturellen Linguistik den Weg
