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: Itinerari salvioniani
Subtitle: Per Carlo Salvioni nel centocinquantenario della nascita
Edited By: Michele Loporcaro
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/itinerari-salvioniani.html
Series Title: Romanica Helvetica, Vol. 132
Description:

Il volume propone al lettore un accostamento alla figura e all’opera di Carlo
Salvioni (Bellinzona 1858-Milano 1920), affrontando diversi aspetti della sua
vicenda biografica e intellettuale e della sua produzione scientifica. Allievo a
Lipsia dei neogrammatici, poi collaboratore di Graziadio Isaia Ascoli
all’«Archivio Glottologico Italiano» – rivista con cui Ascoli gettò le basi della
moderna linguistica italiana – all’Ascoli succedette nella direzione
dell’«Archivio» e poi sulla cattedra milanese, dopo aver insegnato a Torino e
Pavia. Accademico della Crusca e Linceo, membro di varie società
scientifiche e accademie europee, Salvioni è figura chiave per la linguistica in
Italia a cavallo tra Otto e Novecento, e non è meno importante per la nativa
Svizzera, dove fondò nel 1907 il Vocabolario dei dialetti della Svizzera
italiana. Lasciò centinaia di studi – che tuttora fanno testo – sui più diversi
aspetti della storia linguistica italiana e della struttura dell’italiano letterario e
dei suoi dialetti, nonché studi di argomento gallo- ed iberoromanzo, tutti
ripubblicati negli Scritti linguistici stampati dalle Edizioni dello Stato del
Cantone Ticino per il centocinquantenario della nascita (2008).
