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.

Book Information


Title: El español de Valencia. Estudio sociolingüístico
Edited By: José Ramón Gómez Molina
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?431465
Series Title: Fondo Hispánico de Lingüística y Filología

Esta obra incluye una serie de trabajos de investigación sociolingüística que contribuyen al conocimiento de la estructura y uso de la lengua española en la comunidad de habla bilingüe castellano-catalán de Valencia. Los estudios que aquí se presentan han sido realizados por diferentes miembros del equipo de investigación PRESEVAL (Proyecto para el Estudio Sociolingüístico del Español de Valencia) y ofrecen el estado actual de nueve fenómenos lingüísticos del español hablado en esta área urbana correspondientes a los niveles fónico, sintáctico, léxico y pragmático. Tal como señalan algunos de los trabajos aquí expuestos, el contacto de lenguas en esta comunidad de habla no solo genera fenómenos propios de una situación de bilingüismo social, sino también acelera o ralentiza determinados procesos de variación y cambio lingüísticos.
