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.

Title: Computational Linguistics and Formal Semantics
Edited By: Michael Rosner
Roderick Johnson
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing
Description:

This collection takes the exciting step of examining natural language
phenomena from the perspectives of both computational linguistics and
formal semantics. Computational linguistics has until now been primarily
concerned with the construction of computational models for handling the
complexities of linguistic form, but has not tackled the questions of
representing or computing meaning. Formal semantics, on the other hand, has
attempted to account for the relations between forms and meanings, without
necessarily attending to computational concerns. Computational Linguistics
and Formal Semantics introduces the reader to the two disciplines and
considers the prospects for the more unified and comprehensive
computational theory of language that might obtain from their amalgamation.
