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: L'article «Argot» au fil des dictionnaires depuis le XVIIe siècle
Written By: Denis Delaplace
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details
Description:

De 1629 à nos jours, les dictionnaires ont consacré au mot argot des articles tributaires de représentations reprises sans réexamen, souvent contradictoires entre elles, voire contredites par les faits. L'auteur en retrace les étapes et propose des pistes pour réétudier ce qui se joue sous la polysémie du terme. From 1629, and still today, the word argot is explained in dictionaries through a series of definitions which have been repeated over and over again without re-examination. These definitions often contradict each other, and moreover, are often contradicted by fact. The author of this work retraces the steps and suggests certain avenues by which the polysemy of the term can be studied anew.
