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.

Series Title: De Gruyter Pluralisierung & Autorität 38
Description:

This volume sheds light on plurilingualism in Spanish-occupied Italy during the early modern period from a variety of perspectives. Topics include written language in pragmatic contexts (such as administrative documents), plurilingual literature and theater, and early modern thought on plurilingualism. I contributi riuniti negli Atti del Convegno „Reperti di plurilinguismo nell'Italia spagnola (sec. XVI‑XVII) / Hallazgos de plurilingüismo en la Italia española (siglos XVI‑XVII)“ (Monaco di Baviera 13./14.10.2011) indagano da angolature diverse il plurilinguismo dell'Italia spagnola nella prima età moderna quale problema della storiografia delle lingue romanze. Una parte dei contributi è dedicata al contatto linguistico e alla produzione discorsiva-testuale italo-spagnola, compresa la riflessione (soprattutto letteraria) su di essa. Un'altra parte dei contributi si occupa di questioni più strettamente italianistiche, come il rapporto tra tradizioni scrittorie regionali e il toscano.
