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.

Query: References on ''Youth Language''
....................................

Dear Linguists,

I am currently preparing a sociolinguistics handbook article on ''Youth
Language'', a subject-matter which is also known as ''youth/teenage speech'',
''Jugendsprache'' (German), ''langue des jenues'' (French), ''lingua dei
giovani'' (Italian), etc.

As it now stands, my references cover (Western) Europe and the
U.S. (A bibliography is available on my website, see link below.) Therefore
I am searching for references on youth language from other parts of the
world: Africa, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Latin America.

In case you have something to contribute, please make your reference as
complete as possible, including publisher and isbn number. I would greatly
appreciate it if you could also very briefly indicate the scope of the
article or book in question.

It goes without saying that I will post a summary.

Best regards,
Jannis Androutsopoulos
(Heidelberg, Germany)
