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.

Program Description: The Departamento de Linguística Geral e Românica of the Faculdade de Letras offers a Masters Program in Linguistics (Phonetics and Phonology): Sounds and Melodies of Portuguese. The aim is to improve understanding of sound structure and provide training on various applied areas where such knowledge is needed.
The Courses taught are designed to deepen the students' knowledge of Portuguese phonetics and phonology and put it into use in areas such as language teaching, language acquisition and development, speech production and perception, speech therapy, speech recognition, or forensic phonetics.
The MA is suitable both for those with some prior knowledge of the subject and for appropriately motivated beginners. Among the former are students whose undergraduate degree included linguistic course units where the basics of phonetics and phonology was taught. The latter category includes good graduates that have encountered linguistics, and in particular phonetics and phonology, only indirectly through teaching degrees, psychology, philosophy, computer science, journalism, music, and other fields.
