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.

Meeting Description: International Multidisciplinary Colloquium: Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science
December 20-21, 2012
Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS)
45 rue d’Ulm, 75005 Paris

It is our pleasure to announce the ‘Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science’ colloquium.

With the support of the Paris Diderot University, IHPST, IEC (Linguistics Department) and the ANR-DFG NOMINAL project.

Organizers: Alexandra Arapinis (IHPST), Friederike Moltmann (IHPST), Lucia Tovena (Paris Diderot University)

The colloquium will be preceded by a one-day tutorial on the mass/count distinction given by Friederike Moltmann (IHPST) and David Nicholas (IJN).

The aim of this colloquium is to provide a platform of exchange between linguists, philosophers and psychologists, working the different aspects of the mass/count distinction. Such a resolutely interdisciplinary approach is indeed necessary to fully apprehend the new questions that are presently arising in connection to the mass/count distinction. This multidisciplinary conference aspires to move this scientific debate forward, and contribute to the evolution of current methodology.
