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: Le Français et le Provençal
Written By: H. Suchier

Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica

J’étudie les principaux changements qu’a subis la latin vulgaire de la Gaul
devenu le français et la provençal. Peut-être cette étude ne semblera-t-elle
pas une préparation inutile à la grammaire historique de ces deux langues. La
méthode linguistique que j’emploie est celle qui a été exposée avec tant
d’autorité par M. Paul dans ses excellents Prinzipien der
Sprachengeschichte. Toutefois, je ne m’y conforme point d’une manière
servile: j’y apporte des modifications que je dois, soit à la lecture des
ouvrages de MM. Schuchardt at Ascoli, soit à mes recherches personelles.
Le propre de cette méthode, c’est de regarder comme essentiel, dans chaque
changement linguistique, le changement psychique accompli dans l’esprit
des individus qui parlaient la langue en question. (de la préface).

Table des matières: Chapitre I : Limites du domaine gallo-roman. Chapitre II :
Développement phonétique de la langue littéraire (jusqu’au XXIIe siècle,
aperçu des sons au XIIe siècle, la langue française vivante). Chapitre III :
Développment phonétique des dialects (dialectes gascons, provençeaux,
frontière Sud des dialectes français). Chapitre IV : Chenagements associatifs
dans les formes de flexions (le verbe, le nom, le pronom). Chapitre V :
Permutation de sons. Chapitre VI : Croisement, assimilation de vocables,
étymologie populaire. Chapitre VII : Changements de signification,
Changements d’empoli. Chapitre VIII : Changements d’emploi. Chapitre IX :
Relation ; accord ; genre. Chapitre X : Ellipse et phénomènes semblances.
