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: Historische Sprachwissenschaft des Deutschen
Subtitle: Eine Einführung in die Prinzipien des Sprachwandels
Written By: Damaris Nübling
Janet Duke
Renata Szczepaniak
URL: http://www.narr.de/details.php?catp=&p_id=16615
Series Title: narr studienbücher
Description:

Dieses Studienbuch stellt zum einen die wichtigsten historischen Umbrüche
der deutschen Sprache bis in die heutige Zeit dar, zum anderen und vor
allem aber auch deren Begründung, und theoretische Fundierung und
typologische Einordnung. Es wird daher zentral darum gehen, Warum-Fragen zu
diskutieren stellen und zu beantworten. So hat sich das Deutsche im Laufe
seiner Geschichte von einer \\\"Silben\\\"- zu einer ausgeprägten
\\\"Wortsprache\\\" entwickelt, was sich auf mehreren Ebenen (z.B.
Phonologie, Orthographie, Morphologie) niederschlägt. In der Syntax wird
auf das Klammerprinzip abgehoben. Diesem übergreifenden Prinzip und einigen
weiteren Prinzipien gehen die Autorinnen anhand zahlreicher Beispiele nach
und ermöglichen so ein tieferes Verständnis der deutschen Sprachgeschichte.
