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: Sprachpsychologie
Written By: Mark Galliker
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/sprachpsychologie.html
Series Title: UTB M

Wie entstand die Sprache des Menschen? Wie entwickelt sich das Sprachvermögen bei Kindern? Welche Vorgänge laufen beim Lesen- und Schreibenlernen ab? Mit solchen sprachpsychologischen Fragen beschäftigt sich dieses Buch. Bisher behandelte die Psychologie der Sprache ihre Gegenstände, das Sprechen und Zuhören, das Schreiben und Lesen, weitgehend individualistischexperimentell, ohne Berücksichtigung der Evolution, Kultur und Kommunikation. Im vorliegenden Lehrbuch werden diese drei Aspekte integriert und auf der Grundlage aktueller Erkenntnisse psychologisch und auch neuropsychologisch ausdifferenziert. Die neuronale Aktivität wird nicht als eindimensionale Ursache des Sprachgebrauchs betrachtet, sondern als naturwissenschaftlich nachvollziehbarer Durchgang des kulturhistorisch aufgearbeiteten Gesamtprozesses. Unter Berücksichtigung aktueller Forschungsresultate vermittelt dieser Band das notwendige Wissen über die Sprachpsychologie in einem gut verständlichen Überblick. Register und ein umfangreiches Glossar mit Fachbegriffen runden den Band ab.
