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: B.A. Linguistics students are introduced to the methods of analysis of human languages by a series of core courses that deal with the articulatory and physical properties of speech sounds, their organization in the speaker's mind, the structure of words and sentences, the expression of meaning in words, sentences, and texts, and the historical development of languages. These basic areas of linguistic analysis are supplemented by a series of elective courses that allow students to choose among a number of courses emphasizing the social and cultural aspects of language, the developmental and/or pedagogical aspects of a first or second language, or aspects of computational linguistics involving man-machine interaction on the level of speech processing and written text understanding.
