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: Morphology and its Interfaces
Edited By: Alexandra Galani
Mike Hicks
George Tsoulas
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/la.178
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 178
Description:

One of the most striking trends across linguistic research in recent years has
been the examination of the interfaces between the various subcomponents of
the language faculty. Yet, approaches to these interfaces across different
theoretical frameworks differ substantially. This volume pulls together research
into Morphology and its interfaces from researchers employing a variety of
different theoretical and methodological perspectives: Morphology is a diverse
field, and rather than aiming to collect works sharing a particular approach or
framework of assumptions, this collection instead captures the diversity and
provides an overview of the state of the research field while also addressing
particular empirical phenomena with up-to-date analyses. The articles collected
provide case studies from a diverse variety of languages revealing properties of
the interfaces that morphology shares with syntax, semantics, phonology, and
the lexicon, while the volume's inclusive cross-theoretical approach will serve to
introduce readers to the findings of alternative frameworks and methodologies.
