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: Phraséologie oratoire
Subtitle: suivi des Lettres amoureuses
Written By: Philippe Desportes
Edited By: François Rouget
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag
Description:

En 1579, Henri III convie certains lettrés à rédiger des manuels de rhétorique et d'éloquence pratique. Le manuscrit autographe de Desportes contenant une «phraséologie oratoire» éclaire sa réelle contribution au projet d'éloquence de Henri III. Ce manuscrit de belles phrases vient rappeler que les activités des membres de l'Académie du Palais se poursuivirent au-delà de leur cadre de réunion comme pour concrétiser par écrit et mettre en pratique les fruits de leurs débats oraux. In 1579, Henri III asked a select group of scholars to put together handbooks on rhetoric and eloquence for him. The manuscript signed by Desportes, containing a "public-speaking phraseology", throws light on his contribution to Henri III's project.
