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: Research in Second Language Processing and Parsing
Edited By: Bill VanPatten
Jill Jegerski
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LALD%2053
Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 53
Description:

This volume is the first dedicated to the growing field of theory and
research on second language processing and parsing. The fourteen papers in
this volume offer cutting-edge research using a number of different
languages (e.g., Arabic, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, English) and
structures (e.g., relative clauses, wh-gaps, gender, number) to examine
various issues in second language processing: first language influence,
whether or not non-natives can achieve native-like processing, the roles of
context and prosody, the effects of working memory, and others. The
researchers include both established scholars and newer voices, all
offering important insights into the factors that affect processing and
parsing in a second language.
