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: Selected Papers from SinFonIJA 3
Edited By: Maja Marković
Description:

The present volume is a selection of papers presented at the SinFoniJa 3 conference, held at the University of Novi Sad in October 2010. A wide range of linguistics-related topics was covered on this occasion, and the selection before you represents the variety and quality of research the editors wish to promote. It aims at upholding sound linguistic theorizing as the basis of natural language analysis and cutting-edge applied-linguistics concerns. Among the novel linguistic topics in the fields of syntax, phonology, semantics and natural language processing, the book includes (re)analyses of negative imperatives, constructions with multiple occurrences of the semantically interdependent indefinite expressions, future constructions, verbal categories, demonstrative reinforcers, word order and clitic doubling, control constituents, non-final information focus, clitic placement, named entity recognition, prosody prediction in speech synthesis) and covering data from various languages inlcuding English, Polish, Turkic, Bulgarian, Slovenian, Serbian and others. In addition, the research presented here shows why the assumptions regarding the interfaces of these domains, which we often take for granted, require solid empirical grounding.
