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.

Series Title: Sciences pour la communication - Volume 104
Description:

Hans Kronning s’est fait connaître comme un grand spécialiste international de l’expression de la modalité et de l’évidentialité dans les langues romanes, et nombreux sont les linguistes qui se sont inspirés de ses travaux. Cet ouvrage rassemble des articles de chercheurs familiers des travaux de Kronning et témoigne de la largeur et de la profondeur de sa pensée à laquelle aucune langue romane n’est étrangère. Le volume réunit des spécialistes travaillant en Belgique, en Finlande, en France, en Italie, en Norvège, en Suède et en Suisse et les contributions abordent des sujets allant de phénomènes purement linguistiques et sémantiques aux analyses littéraires en passant par des réflexions portant sur la comparaison des langues, y compris la traduction. De même, plusieurs langues romanes sont représentées, aussi bien pour ce qui est des faits traités qu’en ce qui concerne la langue appliquée pour la rédaction des articles. Ainsi cet ouvrage est-il un reflet de l’œuvre et de l’ouverture d’esprit de Hans Kronning.
