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: Southeast Asian has been an important area historically, politically and linguistically. At present it is even more important as far as socio-economics is concerned. To promote cooperation with various nations in this area by exchanging knowledge, expertise and technology, as well as to improve the quality of life for the people in rural areas, a real understanding of the languages and cultures of the various ethnic groups in this area is quite essential. The Research Institute for Language and Culture of Asia offers a Ph.D. Program in Linguistics to train people to be specialists in Southeast Asian languages and linguistics, both theoretical and applied. For applied linguistics, the emphasis is not only on Southeast Asian language teaching and translation, but also on the application of linguistics to rural development, especially in the areas of education, public health, public relations, regional administration and the like.
