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: Grammaire du français de la Renaissance
Subtitle: Étude morphosyntaxique
Written By: Sabine Lardon

URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag

Destinée à ceux qui pratiquent, étudient ou enseignent la langue du XVIe siècle, cette grammaire présente quelques-unes des grandes notions morphosyntaxiques du français de la Renaissance. Celles-ci sont replacées dans une perspective historique afin de donner une vision de l'évolution de la langue. Ont été mises à profit les ressources de la base Frantext ainsi que différentes études sur la langue du Moyen Âge, de la Renaissance ou de l'âge classique, en incluant les travaux les plus récents. Sont également rappelées, à chaque fois que leurs analyses diffèrent des nôtres, les positions de plusieurs grammairiens du XVIe siècle (Palsgrave, Sylvius, Meigret, R. Estienne et Ramus), dont l'étude est souvent indispensable pour aborder la langue de la Renaissance. Indispensable for all those who read, study or teach the language of the 16th century, this grammar presents some of the key morpho-syntactical notions of Renaissance French.
