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: Biannual meeting of the Belgian Netherlands Cognitive Linguistics Association (BeNeCLA)

After four fruitful meetings in Utrecht (2004), Leuven (2006), Leiden (2008), and Antwerp (2010), Groningen will host the fifth biennial conference of the Belgium Netherlands Cognitive Linguistics Association (BeNeCLA, http://benecla.com/). The event is being organized by the University of Groningen in cooperation with the BeNeCLA board.

The two-day conference offers a venue for researchers from the Low Countries to present and discuss their research results in the various strands of cognitive linguistics or other cognitively inspired usage based approaches. These may encompass a variety of perspectives, but they share the view that grammar is not only a socially grounded system for producing and understanding language, but is also shaped by those processes during linguistic interactions.

Invited Speakers:

Mirjam Fried, Dagmar Divjak, and Alan Cienki


The Faculty of Language: a debate with Arie Verhagen, Jan Wouter Zwart, and Muriel Norde
Linguistic Subfield: Linguistic Theories
LL Issue: 23.2000
