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: Essai d'histoire sociolinguistique
Subtitle: Le français picard au Moyen Âge
Written By: Serge Lusignan
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag
Description:

Dans une perspective d'histoire sociolinguistique, ce livre analyse les conditions qui permirent au français picard d'occuper une place centrale dans la culture écrite des trois derniers siècles du Moyen Âge. Langue de la création littéraire, de l'administration et de la régulation sociale, le picard fut utilisé jusqu'en régions néerlandophones. Sa maîtrise à l'écrit s'appuyait sur un enseignement dans les écoles urbaines du Nord ; les villes en furent d'ailleurs le principal foyer de rayonnement. Taking a historical sociolinguistic perspective, this book analyses the conditions which allowed the French of Picardie to occupy a central place in the written culture of the last three centuries of the Middle Ages.
