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: La struttura dell’informazione nel sintagma nominale
Subtitle: DP = CP?
Written By: Francesca Ramaglia
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu/
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Theoretical Linguistics 52

Questo volume propone un’analisi strutturale del sintagma nominale all’interno del quadro teorico offerto dalla Grammatica Generativa. In particolare, il lavoro esplora il parallelismo fra nome e verbo, così come quello fra le proiezioni estese di queste due categorie lessicali, sulla base di dati empirici tratti soprattutto da lingue tipologicamente e geneticamente diverse come il somalo, l’ungherese e l’italiano. Vengono analizzate in modo specifico costruzioni nominali marcate dal punto di vista dell’articolazione dell’informazione, tramite le quali si intende esaminare la cosiddetta “periferia sinistra” del sintagma nominale. L’analisi proposta è supportata da numerosi esempi e resa più esplicita per mezzo di diagrammi e strutture ad albero. Il volume si propone dunque come contributo sia a livello descrittivo, relativamente alle diverse strutture nominali prese in esame, sia a livello esplicativo, in quanto l’analisi è basata su un apparato teorico solido e rigoroso. Il presente lavoro può essere considerato di interesse per studenti di linguistica, e in particolare di sintassi, a livello avanzato, nonché per ricercatori interessati allo studio del sintagma nominale e del suo parallelismo con la struttura della frase. La presenza di dati tratti da lingue tipologicamente diverse rende inoltre questo testo utile per studiosi che si occupano di strutture nominali in una prospettiva comparativa.
