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: Morphotactics
Subtitle: Basque Auxiliaries and the Structure of Spellout
Written By: Karlos Arregi
Andrew Nevins
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/linguistics/book/978-94-007-3888-1?changeHeader
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Description:

This comprehensive treatment of several phenomena in Distributed Morphology
explores a number of topics of high relevance to current linguistic theory. It
examines the structure of the syntactic and postsyntactic components of word
formation, and the role of hierarchical, featural, and linear restrictions within the
auxiliary systems of several varieties of Basque.

The postsyntactic component is modeled as a highly articulated system that
accounts for what is shared and what exhibits variation across Basque dialects.
The emphasis is on a principled ordering of postsyntactic operations based on
their intrinsic properties, and on the relationship between representations in the
Spellout component of grammar with other grammatical modules. The analyses
in the book treat related phenomena in other languages and thereby have much
to offer for a general morphology readership, as well as those interested in the
syntax-morphology interface, the theory of Distributed Morphology, and Basque.
