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: Le discours rapporté : approches linguistiques et perspectives didactiques
Edited By: Cecile Desoutter
Caroline Mellet
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?431292
Series Title: Linguistic Insights - Volume 178

Le discours rapporté (DR) est un objet de recherche complexe et débattu qui demande à être abordé sous ses multiples facettes. Le présent ouvrage rassemble des études en français et en italien sur les marques du DR, à l’oral et à l’écrit, dans une approche linguistique et didactique. L’introduction et les douze chapitres qui composent le recueil proviennent de contributeurs et contributrices venus d’horizons variés. Les uns et les autres illustrent, sur des bases théoriques diverses, l’hétérogénéité des phénomènes du DR, l’incertain de sa délimitation linguistique mais aussi son omniprésence dans les genres les plus divers. Considérant que le repérage, l’identification du DR et de ses frontières ne vont pas de soi, les auteurs suggèrent des pistes didactiques ou proposent des exercices intégrant les résultats de leurs analyses.
