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.

Series Title: Bloomsbury Advances in Translation
Description:

Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

Translation studies and humour studies are disciplines that have been
long established but have seldom been looked at in conjunction. This volume
looks at the intersection of the two disciplines as found in the media -- on
television, in film and in print. From American cable drama to Japanese
television this collection shows the range and insight of contemporary cross-
disciplinary approaches to humour and translation.

Featuring a diverse and global range of contributors, this is a unique
addition to existing literature in translation studies and it will appeal to a wide
cross-section of scholars and postgraduates.
