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. 532
Description:

Der XXV. Band des Romanistischen Kolloquiums widmet sich dem räumlichen und ethnischen, historischen wie aktuellen Kontext der romanischen Varietäten und ihrer nichtromanischen Kontaktsprachen in Südosteuropa. Er thematisiert dazu Fragen zur Sprachtypologie, Morphologie, Toponomastik, Sprachgeschichte und zum Sprachkontakt, aber auch zu Migration und Transhumanz, zu Siedlungssystemen oder zur Weitergabe mündlichen Erzählguts unter den Bajeschi und Rudari. So entsteht ein (mindestens partielles) Bild der räumlich-kulturellen Komplexität und sprachlichen Morphologie der romanischen Varietäten Aromunisch und Rumänisch und ihrer Nachbarsprache Albanisch in Südosteuropa. Die Beiträge beleuchten dabei auch etablierte Termini wie etwa den Balkansprachbund bewusst kritisch. Insgesamt zeigt der Band, dass der Statu quo romanischer „Balkansprachen“ nur über einen Bezug zur Westromania u n d eine sehr vielschichtige Rekonstruktion der komplexen historischen, demographischen und kulturell-ethnischen Ver - hältnisse in Südosteuropa konstatiert werden kann.
