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.

Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 21
Description:

No sound class requires so much basic knowledge of phonology, acoustics,
aerodynamics, and speech production as obstruents (turbulent sounds) do.
This book is intended to bridge a gap by introducing the reader to the
world of obstruents from a multidisciplinary perspective. It starts with a
review of typological processes, continues with various contributions to
the phonetics-phonology interface, explains the realization of specific
turbulent sounds in endangered languages, and finishes with surveys of
obstruents from a sociophonetic, physical and pathological perspective.
