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: Understanding the Dynamics of Classroom Communication
Written By: Sungbae Ko
URL: http://www.c-s-p.org/Flyers/Understanding-the-Dynamics-of-Classroom-Communication1-4438-4211-7.htm
Description:

Conversational participants in the classroom are not ordinary conversationalists, but conversationalists in a pedagogical multiparty community. A different speech exchange system may produce different problems and different opportunities of sequential organisation when we shift our attention from ordinary conversation to a different speech-exchange system. Understanding the Dynamics of Classroom Communication provides much-needed descriptions of communication within language classrooms, which acknowledge the importance of what teachers and students bring to the class environment, as well as what actually occurs during face-to-face communication within the classroom. Using authentic, naturally-occurring data, this book offers new insights into the sequencing of patterns of interaction that occur between individuals engaged in dynamic co-participation beyond the properties of individual learner language. In the final chapter, some implications for Second Language Acquisition are also discussed.
