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: Adjektivderivation in der Urkundensprache des 13. Jahrhunderts [Adjective Derivation in the Language of Documents from the 13th Century]
Written By: Christine Ganslmayer
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/40553?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 97
Description:

The study originates from the Erlangen research project on word formation in the
Middle High German language of documents from the 13th century. It examines
in detail the adjective derivation in the texts of the “Corpus of Old German
original documents dating to the year 1300” and thus closes a gap in the
research, as word formation in German of the High Middle Ages has been little
studied to date. This historical period is especially interesting for research
purposes because during this period, morphological structures were formed
which later became permanently established in New High German.
