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: Neologica
Subtitle: Revue internationale de néologie 2007, n° 1

Neologica, revue internationale de néologie fondée et dirigée par John Humbley et Jean-François Sablayrolles, vise à combler une lacune dans le domaine des sciences du langage, qui ne s'intéressent qu'épisodiquement ou indirectement à ce phénomène fondamental dans toutes les langues qu'est la néologie (aussi bien les créations formelles que les innovations dans l'emploi des unités lexicales: «mots» et séquences figées). Révélateurs du dynamisme des langues, les néologismes entretiennent des relations avec toutes les branches des sciences du langage. Leur étude est donc vaste et doit être conduite sous de multiples angles d'attaque, qui fourniront autant de thèmes pour les numéros à venir. Chaque numéro comprend en effet une partie thématique et une partie varia ainsi que des rubriques comme la bibliographie de la néologie, des comptes rendus, etc. Neologica, an international review of neology, aims to fill a gap in modern language sciences, which take only episodic and indirect interest in a phenomenon which is fundamental in all languages.
