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: Quantitative Data in Formal Semantics and Pragmatics
Special thematic session as part of the 19th Amsterdam Colloquium
December 18-20, 2013, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Recent years have seen increasing efforts in bringing empirical data from either psycholinguistic experiments or corpus-based investigations to bear on formal semantic and pragmatic theories.

This laudable empirical reorientation also brings into focus the quantitative dimension frequently inherent in empirical data sets. In turn, this calls for theories and models that are sensitive to or even predict quantitative data. This workshop is dedicated to novel research in formal semantics and pragmatics that takes quantitative empirical data seriously.
