Featured Linguist!

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.

Workshop ‘FeminineMasculine’ in Contrastive Lexicology and Phraseology
Workshop convenor: Ramón Martí Solano

The words and expressions used in natural languages to refer to the sexes, to their relations, resemblances and differences and to their distinctive traits are numerous and varied. They are the product and the reflection not only of the idiosyncrasy of a linguistic community but also of the roles, either real or presupposed, associated in each language to men and women.

Our aim is to bring together researchers in lexicology, lexicography, lexical semantics, phraseology, paremiology and other related fields in order to observe and analyse the concepts of ‘feminine’/‘masculine’, their representations and interrelations.
