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.

Jacques Bellot, «gentilhomme originaire de Caen», enseignait le français à Londres, où il s'était réfugié pour des raisons religieuses, dans les années 1580-1590. L'ouvrage présenté ici est issu de sa pratique pédagogique et représente une réflexion rigoureuse de l'auteur sur sa langue maternelle, associée à une réelle volonté de rendre ce contenu abordable à un élève de l'époque. Traduite ici pour la première fois, la grammaire de Bellot s'accompagne d'une introduction présentant une biographie de l'auteur, d'une reproduction fac-similé de l'édition originale de 1588 et de plusieurs index (index de noms, de graphies et index thématique). Translated here for the first time, Bellot's Grammaire is introduced by a biography of the author, a facsimilé reproduction of the original 1588 edition and several indices (index of names, spellings and themes).
