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: Initiation à la langue française
Written By: Daniel Cachedenier
Edited By: Alberte Jacquetin-Gaudet
Colette Demaizière
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag
Series Title: Traités sur la langue française, 16
Description:

Lorrain, noble, mais contraint à l'exil pour ses convictions calvinistes, l'auteur a enseigné le français dans plusieurs Académies ou Universités allemandes. L'unique édition de cette Grammaire, illustrée d'un Dialogue pourvu dans ses marges de renvois à celle-ci, apparaît, bien avant les Remarques de Vaugelas et la Grammaire de Port-Royal, comme une véritable «somme» sur la langue française, qui mérite d'être sauvée d'un injuste oubli. The unique edition of this Grammaire, illustrated by a Dialogue bearing marginal references to the Grammaire, appeared well before Vaugelas Remarques and the Port-Royal Grammaire: it is an authentic summa on French language which deserves to be saved from oblivion.
