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.

1st Postgraduate Conference on Linguistic Politeness
8 March 2013

The Centre for Intercultural Politeness Research (http://www.hud.ac.uk/cipr), University of Huddersfield is pleased to announce the 1st Postgraduate Conference on Linguistic Politeness, organised under the aegis of the Centre and the Linguistic Politeness Research Group. This one day event provides an excellent opportunity for postgraduate researchers to introduce their ideas to a wider audience and to exchange views with others.

The conference will be opened by a brief introductory lecture by Sara Mills (Sheffield Hallam University) and Daniel Z. Kadar (The University of Huddersfield).

The conference is a strictly non-profit event, and so there is no participation fee. However, due to this we are also unable to offer catering services for the participants, who will all be welcomed for an informal lunch at a nearby restaurant on a self-paid basis.
