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.

Description: Pragmatics & Cognition Editor Marcelo Dascal, Tel Aviv University Associate Editors Jens Allwood, University of Göteborg Itiel E. Dror, (Cognition &Technology) Southampton University Yaron Senderowicz, Tel Aviv University Benny Shanon, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Stephen Stich, Rutgers University Yorick Wilks, University of Sheffield ISSN: 0929-0907 E-ISSN: 1569-9943 Electronic edition at ingentaJournals Pragmatics & Cognition is an interdisciplinary journal seeking to bring together such disciplines as philosophy, linguistics, semiotics, cognitive science, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, ethology, and cognitive anthropology, among others. The journal seeks to explore relations of all sorts between semiotic systems as used by humans, animals and machines, in connection with mental activities: logical and causal dependence; condition of acquisition, development of loss; modeling, simulation of formalization, shared or separate biological and neurological bases; social and cultural variation; aesthetic expression; historical development; etc. Pragmatics & Cognition’s basic assumption is that the proper understanding of mental life and inter-personal relations requires an intensive and thoughtful exchange of views across disciplines. As of Vol. 13 (2005) Pragmatics & Cognition pays special attention to the growing interest in the relationship between technological advances and cognition – a field that is intimately related to the journal’s basic concerns. The journal appears in three issues per year with one issue devoted to Cognition and Technology (C&T), containing invited as well as submitted refereed papers. Space will also be reserved in these thematic issues for submitted articles, discussion notes, and book reviews in the field of C&T not specifically related to the theme of the Special Issue. Each Special C&T Issue will be co-edited by a Guest Editor and Dr. Itiel Dror, who has been appointed P&C’s Associate Editor for C&T.
