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.

Summer School Announcement: Summer Course on Distributed Morphology and Turkish Morphosyntax/Istanbul,Turkey

Host Institution: Boğaziçi University
Website http://www.summer.boun.edu.tr
Dates: 24-Jun-2013 to 7-Aug-2013
Location: Istanbul, Turkey
Focus: This is a course on Distributed Morphology and Turkish Morphosyntax. It is of special interest to those in the field of theoretical linguistics with specific focus on distributed morphology and Turkish morphosyntax.
Minimum Education Level: MA
Additional Qualifications: The course is intended for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in the framework of Distributed Morphology and Turkish morphosyntax.
Full Summer School Description: The Summer Term of Bogazici University will be offering a course taught by Prof. Jorge Hankamer on Distributed Morphology and Turkish Morphosyntax.
Distributed Morphology (DM) is a framework for the theory and description of relations between morphology and syntax.There is now a considerable amount of cross-linguistic work within the DM framework, but very little of it has focused on Turkish. This opens an opportunity, because the morphology of Turkish interacts with the syntax in very clear and illuminating ways.The proposed course, designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in the first couple of years of their graduate training, will first provide an introduction to DM in the context of current thinking about the theory of syntax. Then it will proceed to various problems and issues in the development of the theory of morphology, particularly as related to the morphology and syntax of Turkish. Early readings will be from the early DM literature. The middle of the course will focus on contemporary DM analyses of phenomena on which Turkish can shed some light. The last segment of the course will concentrate on specific problems in Turkish morphosyntax, viewed from a DM perspective.

Summer term courses of Bogazici University are available to all university students in Turkey and abroad. All applicants are expected to fulfill the English proficiency requirements of Bogazici University except for students coming from universities where the official language of instruction is English.
