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: Géneros discursivos institucionales
Written By: Heraclia Castellón Alcalá
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu/
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Communication 08
Description:

Los poderes públicos adoptan una tonalidad específica para formular sus directrices. Abordar las formas discursivas de los mensajes del ámbito de los poderes públicos es a lo que apunta este trabajo. Se trata de comprobar los rasgos caracterizadores de los géneros discursivos ligados al poder y las instituciones. Se registran las confluencias entre estos tipos discursivos por pertenecer al género de la comunicación del poder. Algún apartado se dedica a reconocer la existencia de subgéneros discursivos específicos (el discurso regio), o también a abordar los trazos fundamentales de la amplia variedad de mensajes considerados como “lenguaje político”. Otro asunto abordado es la torpeza expresiva que aqueja a determinados mensajes normativos, hasta arrastrarlos al fracaso comunicativo; sus consecuencias son de considerable calibre, como los casos deplorables aquí recogidos. Se destaca finalmente el entrelazamiento textual de algunos mensajes, donde la intertextualidad aflora como factor constitutivo. Heraclia Castellón Alcalá (Almería) es Catedrática de Lengua y Literatura Españolas de Educación Secundaria, tutora UNED y miembro de un grupo de investigación lingüística de la Universidad de Almería. Sus publicaciones giran en torno al análisis del lenguaje administrativo, el funcionamiento de la argumentación en algunos textos y la descripción de ciertos subgéneros discursivos (el monólogo, la copla).
