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.

Book Information


Title: Sens et représentation en conflit
Subtitle: Conceptualisation, signification et construction discursive
Edited By: Abdelhadi Bellachhab

URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?21782
Series Title: GRAMM-R. Etudes de linguistique française / GRAMM-R. Studies of French Linguistics - Volume 12

Cet ouvrage illustre à travers plusieurs perspectives les conflits d’interprétation pouvant être générés par le binôme sens et représentation et leurs liens potentiels. Il propose, au travers des diverses contributions, de mettre ces conflits en exergue, de voir leurs manifestations sur le plan du discours, de l’interaction et de la communication. Il s’interroge sur les outils et pratiques possibles d’interprétation tout en offrant de nouvelles voies de réflexion. L’idée fondatrice qui anime cet ouvrage est le rapport existant entre l’expérience humaine, le sens que l’on construit à partir de cette expérience, et la représentation que l’on établit d’elle. C’est dans cette optique que sens et représentation, dans leurs diverses acceptions, se situent au centre de tout rapport entre l’être humain en tant que sujet interagissant et son environnement, y compris son rapport avec Autrui.
