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.

Description:

This essential work with its more than a thousand maps and commentaries is
the first to document the surname stock of the Federal Republic of Germany by
statistical occurrence and geographical distribution. It meets the interests of
linguists with a grammatical part (three volumes) dealing with the phonematics,
graphematics, morphematics and syntagmatics of family names, while cultural
historians and population historians are served with a lexical part (three volumes
- surnames by place of origin and domicile, by occupation and by nicknames,
by given names). The atlas provides a new basis for onomastics. It also
presents an indispensable aid to other disciplines from social history through
research into settlement and migration to genetics.
