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: Vocabulario indígena en la Historia de fray Bernardino de Sahagún
Written By: Teresa Bastardín Candón
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?431432
Series Title: Fondo Hispánico de Lingüística y Filología
Description:

Este análisis lingüístico de la Historia sahaguntina conforma un verdadero diccionario de voces indígenas en el que se explican los sentidos contextuales y su seguimiento lexicográfico histórico. La información contenida permite rastrear la cultura nahua en la que se desenvuelve fray Bernardino, con especial atención a su formación humanística y a la labor franciscana en América, y sirve de testimonio documental sobre la finalidad lingüística de la obra, además de constatar la vitalidad y la función social de cada término indio recogido. Asimismo, se revisan las teorías sustratistas del español de América, centradas en el nivel léxico, y los trabajos de carácter histórico que tienen como objeto el estudio de la introducción y pervivencia del léxico amerindio en el español. Se valora, además, el peso lexicográfico de los indigenismos, desde los primeros glosarios hasta las más recientes recopilaciones, con las referencias lexicográficas históricas textuales, los procedimientos de trasmisión indigenista de cada lengua, y su adaptación fonética y morfológica.

Teresa Bast ardín Candón, doctora en Filología Hispánica, profesora del Área de Lengua Española de la Universidad de Cádiz. Su línea de investigación se centra en el ámbito dialectológico, especialmente referido a las variedades históricas americana y andaluza, con publicaciones al respecto en revistas nacionales e internacionales.
