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.

Linguistic Subfield(s): Discourse Analysis
Program Size: Small (1-10 students)
Program Description: The MA in Discourse Studies at Lancaster builds on our Department's international reputation in discourse studies to offer an innovative programme that studies a range of types of discourse and of ways of analyzing them. This programme, established in the last five years, is unique in the UK and beyond. It will be of interest to students in the social sciences or in a range of professions working with written, spoken or multimodal texts.

The Lancaster Linguistics Department has long been well-known for its distinctive work in pragmatics, stylistics and critical discourse analysis, through the work of renowned scholars such as our Distinguished Professor Ruth Wodak. Collaboration with corpus linguistics, another field for which Lancaster has a high reputation, has led us to develop a unique approach, combining qualitative and quantitative methods. Integrating critical approaches to discourse with notions from cognitive linguistics is another fruitful combination.
