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: La langue hariri et les dialectes éthiopiens du Gouraghê
Written By: Casimir Mondon-Vidailhet
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia

Le harari appartient au rameau des langues sémitiques éthiennes dites sous-
sémitiques. C’est le langage des habitants de la ville de Harar, dépendant
actuellement de l’empire d’Éthiopie, dont elle est restée séparée pendant plus
de trois cents ans, période pendant laquelle elle garda à peu près
complètement son indépendance sous ses émirs. Tombée un instant sous la
domination égyptienne, elle fut de nouveau réunie, d’abord au Choâ, puis à
l’empire d’Ethiopie par l’empereur actuel Ménelik II, en 1887.

Le harari est donc le langage spécial à la ville de Harar, dont la population
sédentaire est d’environ 40,000 habitants. Le Hararis donnent à leur langue le
nom de Gheuy Sinān, c’est-à-dire « Langue de la ville ».

Table des matiéres: Phonétique, le nom, adjectives, pronoms, interrogatifs, le
verbe, mots invariables, adverbes, conjonctions, textes harari, les dialectes
Éthiopiens du Gouraghê (domaine linguistique, phonétique, le nom, etc.).(re-
edition; originally published 1902, Paris; written in French).
