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: Corpus-Informed Research and Learning in ESP
Subtitle: Issues and applications
Edited By: Alex Boulton
Shirley Carter-Thomas
Elizabeth Rowley-Jolivet
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/scl.52
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 52
Description:

These specially-commissioned studies cover corpus-informed approaches to
researching, teaching and learning English for Specific Purposes (ESP). The
corpora used range from very large published corpora to small tailor-made
collections of written and spoken text, as well as parallel and contrastive
corpora, in both the hard and softer sciences. Designed to tackle the
problems faced by a variety of first- and second-language ESP users
(specialised translators, undergraduates, junior and experienced researchers,
and language trainers), the breadth of approaches enables treatment of
issues central to ESP and corpus research, from corpus compilation and
analysis to new applications and data-driven learning. The first full-length
book on applied corpus use in France, "Corpus-Informed Research and
Learning in ESP" will be of interest not only to those working in the French
context, but to a wide variety of language professionals – teachers,
researchers or course designers – in many countries looking at ESP from
different linguistic, cultural and educational perspectives.
