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.

Social Programme:

There will be a reception in the city centre (included in the registration fee), a city walk and a conference dinner. On Saturday afternoon there will be a post-conference excursion. Further information will be given in the second circular.

How to Get to Split:

Whether by plane, boat, bus, train or car, it's getting ever easier to travel to Split. With new trains, new air routes, a new motorway to Zagreb plus dozens of ferries and buses, Split is becoming one of Croatia's prime points of entry. There are not a lot of direct flights to Split (most go to Zagreb) that run all year, but from April to October there are quite a few low-cost carriers that fly directly to Split from a number of cities in the UK, France and Germany as well as an assortment of other European countries. Other airports: Zadar (160 km, regular bus service to Split) and Zagreb (400 km, regular train, bus and plane service to Split).
