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: Opérateurs discursifs du français
Subtitle: Eléments de description sémantique et pragmatique
Edited By: Jean-Claude Anscombre

Series Title: Sciences pour la communication - Volume 105

Cet ouvrage est consacré à la description de plusieurs opérateurs discursifs – entités linguistiques dont l’emploi a pour effet de mettre en place une stratégie discursive spécifique. Leur fonctionnement est appréhendé à travers les propriétés morphosyntaxiques, sémantiques et pragmatiques qui caractérisent ces entités. Chaque opérateur est présenté de la même façon : propriétés linguistiques, structure polyphonique, brève notice diachronique, l’objectif étant de faire apparaître tant la spécificité de chacune des entités que les liens qu’elle entretient avec d’autres opérateurs auxquels elle s’apparente sémantiquement. Les descriptions proposées sont illustrées par de nombreux exemples authentiques. Deux textes théoriques complètent le volume : l’un porte sur la notion de polyphonie comme outil descriptif, et l’autre sur la notion de stratégie discursive.
