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: Applying priming methods to L2 learning, teaching and research
Subtitle: Insights from Psycholinguistics
Edited By: Pavel Trofimovich
Kim McDonough
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26amp%3BLT%2030
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 30
Description:

This volume features a collection of empirical studies which use priming
methods to explore the comprehension, production, and acquisition of second
language (L2) phonology, syntax, and lexicon. The term priming refers to
the phenomenon in which prior exposure to specific language forms or meanings
influences a speaker’s subsequent language comprehension or production. This
book brings together the various strands of priming research into a single
volume that specifically addresses the interests of researchers, teachers, and
students interested in L2 teaching and learning. Chapters by internationally
known scholars feature a variety of priming techniques, describe various
psycholinguistic tasks, and focus on different domains of language knowledge
and skills. The book is conceptualized with a wide audience in mind, including
researchers not familiar with priming methods and their application to L2
research, graduate students in second language acquisition and related
disciplines, and instructors who require readings for use in their courses.
