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.

Book Information


Title: Bibliografía cronológica de la lingüística, la gramática y la lexicografía del español (BICRES III)
Subtitle: Desde el año 1701 hasta el año 1800
Written By: Hans-Josef E Niederehe
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiHoLS%20108
Series Title: Studies in the History of the Language Sciences 108

Since the publication of the still very valuable Biblioteca histórica de la
filología by Cipriano Muñoz y Manzano, conde de la Viñaza (Madrid, 1893),
our knowledge of the history of the study of the Spanish language has grown
considerably. It has been the purpose of BICRES I (from the early
beginnings to 1600), published in 1994, to bring together already available
bibliographical information with the more recent research findings,
scattered in many places, books and articles and published during the past
one hundred years. BICRES II (covering the 1601–1700 period) followed in
1999. Now, the third volume, arranged according to the same principles as
those guiding the preceding volumes and covering the years from 1701 to
1800, has become available.

Years of research in the major libraries of Spain and other European
countries have gone into this new bibliography in order to offer, in an as
exhaustive as possible fashion, a description of all Spanish grammars and
dictionaries, histories of the Spanish language as well studies devoted to
particular facets of its evolution during the 18th century.

Bibliografía cronológica de la lingüística, la gramática y la lexicografía
del español, volume III (BICRES III) brings together in chronological order
more than 1,500 titles. Access to the bibliographical information is
facilitated by several detailed indexes, such as an author index, a short
title index, and a listing of places of production, of printers and
publishers, and also an index of the physical location of the books described.
