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.

Title: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Language Production
Edited By: Thomas Pechmann
Christopher Habel
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs 157
Description:

This volume comprises contributions from different disciplines (cognitive psychology, linguistics, computer science, neuro-science) concerned with the generation of natural speech. It summarizes the outcome of a six-year long priority program funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) that aimed at bringing together colleagues with different viewpoints but sharing a principal interest in the cognitive processes underlying language production. The result is a state-of-the-art discussion of one of the most fascinating branches of human behavior taking into account a particularly rich multidisciplinary empirical data base.
