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
International Journal of Language Studies (IJLS)--ISSN: 2157-4898, eISSN: 2157-4901--is devoted to all areas of language and linguistics. Its aim is to present work of current interest in all areas of language study. IJLS only publishes research papers based on "original extant research" work done by the authors who submit their papers to IJLS for publication. We prefer NOT to accept "transfer" papers based on works done by people other than the authors themselves. At times, however, "State of the Art" articles may be solicited by the journal. Other materials that will be considered include review articles surveying developments in the various fields of language study (including language teaching, language testing, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, (critical) discourse analysis, ESP, curriculum development, politeness research, and so on). Also, a considerable number of pages in each issue are devoted to critical book reviews.
