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: Marqueurs temporels et modaux en usage
Edited By: Walter De Mulder
Jesse Mortelmans
Tanja Mortelmans
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=CHRONOS+26
Series Title: Cahiers Chronos 26
Description:

Qu’il s’agisse de temps verbaux, d’auxiliaires, d’adverbes ou de conjonctions, la plupart des marqueurs temporels et modaux font preuve d’une grande flexibilité sémantique, qui se manifeste à travers leurs emplois dans des contextes différents. Les contributions réunies dans ce volume s’intéressent en majorité aux emplois d’une série de marqueurs du français (« hexagonal » ou non), mais aussi au fonctionnement de marqueurs d’autres langues (par exemple de l’espagnol ou du birman). Elles s’efforcent de décrire d’une façon détaillée les différentes interprétations de ces marqueurs, en privilégiant souvent des usages moins fréquents ou atypiques (le présent « prototypisant », les emplois postmodaux de pouvoir, etc.) et des contextes d’emploi moins fréquemment analysés dans la littérature (rubriques nécrologiques, reportages sportifs, articles législatifs, etc.). Les auteurs apportent ainsi des mises au point éclairantes sur la relation existant entre les emplois temporels, modaux ou évidentiels des temps verbaux (comme le futur simple ou le conditionnel), mais aussi sur la relation entre emplois temporels et emplois discursifs ou argumentatifs d’adverbes dits « temporels ». Le volume contribue de cette façon à une meilleure compréhension de la polyvalence sémantique en général et en particulier à celle des marqueurs temporels et modaux étudiés dans ce volume.
