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: Interkorrelationen von generationsspezifischen Varietäten und Identitätsprofilen
Subtitle: Eine statistische Analyse in Padua
Written By: Anna Kessler
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?262902
Series Title: Variolingua. Nonstandard - Standard - Substandard - Band 43
Description:

Die Arbeit stellt die Analyse zentraler Lemmata der italienischen Jugendkultur sowie regionaler Elemente (Padua) in den Vordergrund und diskutiert diese hinsichtlich ihrer Verbreitung und ihres Gebrauchs. Wiederholte statistische Erhebungen erlauben eine Sprachdynamik nachzuzeichnen und den Aspekt der Identität zu ergänzen. Dem Leser wird damit ein Grundverständnis des Konzepts der Identität vermittelt. Er erhält Einblicke in die systematische Vorgehensweise bei der Erstellung eines Fragebogens, der sowohl linguistischen Kriterien genügt als auch valide Daten zur Errechnung identitätskonstituierender Größen offeriert. Besonders junge Mädchen sind in ihrer Identität diffus. Gleichzeitig benutzen Mädchen mit androgyner Persönlichkeit signifikant häufiger das getestete Vokabular fern von jugendspezifischen Kontexten. Der Einfluss dieser Mädchen auf die Konvergenzbewegung Subvarietät – Standard ist somit zentrales Forschungsergebnis.
