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: Evaluación pragmática de niños con syndrome de Asperger
Written By: Francisco-J. Rodríguez Muñoz
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Pragmatics 25

Francisco J. Rodríguez Muñoz es doctor en Lingüística por la Universidad de Almería (España). Una de sus líneas prioritarias de investigación es la pragmática clínica, como prueban sus recientes publicaciones sobre síndrome de Asperger: Síndrome de Asperger. Materiales y aproximación pragmalingüística (Valencia: Universidad de Valencia, 2009), “Hacia una reformulación del espectro autista” (Mente y Cerebro, 2010), “Estado de la cuestión y aproximación discursivo-comunicativa al síndrome de Asperger” (Lenguaje, Comunicación & Salud, Sevilla: ArCiBel, 2011), “La conciencia pragmática de adultos con síndrome de Asperger” (Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, 2012), entre otras.

En Evaluación pragmática de niños con síndrome de Asperger, el autor repasa exhaustivamente los avances que han conducido a un mayor entendimiento de esta patología en los últimos años. A partir de una muestra de veinte hablantes diagnosticados con síndrome de Asperger, aplica el Protocolo Rápido de Evaluación Pragmática (PREP-INIA) y ofrece los resultados de dicha valoración. Por tanto, pretende suministrar indicadores conductuales que, desde el ámbito de la pragmática, faciliten el proceso de detección del trastorno. Finalmente, proporciona un Apoyo Gráfico para el Entrenamiento Pragmático (AGEP), instrumento que sirvió para la recogida de datos orales y que puede ser útil de cara a la intervención comunicativa.
