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: La manifestación modal en lexías derivadas, con especial atención al par de lenguas: alemán-español
Written By: Beatriz Burgos Cuadrillero
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?431431
Series Title: Europäische Hochschulschriften / European University Studies / Publications Universitaires Européennes - Volume 383

Esta investigación se centra en el análisis de una serie de sufijos y sufijoides en la lengua alemana contemporánea y sus correspondencias con el español, desde el ángulo de la modalidad relativa. Se trata de averiguar si la propia semántica de la palabra posee la capacidad de ejercer una función modalizadora sobre el resto de la oración.

El estudio consta de dos partes bien diferenciadas; por un lado, el aparato teórico que contribuye a sustentar la postura ideológica y, por otro lado, el análisis de la función modalizadora de una serie de lexías derivadas (en particular, sufijos y sufijoides). Esta articulación parte de la premisa fundamental de no separar morfología, semántica y sintaxis, pero sin olvidar que el principal objetivo es el estudio de la modalidad per se que abarca el análisis de la lengua escrita en un estadio sincrónico. Concretamente, se analiza el lenguaje periodístico por la relevancia e interés que pueda suscitar en el lector actual.
