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: Tübinger Beiträge zur Linguistik (TBL), Vol. 535
Description:

Die Beiträge zum XXVI. Romanistischen Kolloquium sind den sprachlichen Aspekten der America Romana gewidmet, also dem Miteinander von romanischen Sprachen inder Neuen Welt, den Berührungen romanischer Sprachen mit anderen europäischen Sprachen wie Englisch oder Niederländisch in Amerika sowie den Kontakten zwischen europäischen und indigenen Idiomen. Die vielsprachigen Hintergründe kreolischer Sprachen bilden ebenso ein typisches Arbeitsfeld der America Romana wie die Besonderheiten der überseeischen Entwicklungen gegen - über den europäischen Ursprüngen. Die Vielfältigkeit der Abhandlungen in diesem Band macht deutlich, dass das Konzept der America Romana eben nicht eine Kombination zwischen amerikanischer Frankophonie und Lateinamerikastudien ist, sondern die romanische Prägung der Neuen Welt in den Mittelpunkt stellt. Der Band schafft somit eine Grundlage und gibt zugleich zahlreiche Anstöße für weitere Forschungen auf diesem Gebiet.
