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.

Title: Ne pas dire
Subtitle: Pour une étude du non-dit dans la littérature et la culture européennes
Edited By: Peter Schnyder
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_garni
Description:

Le non-dit est à la littérature ce que le silence est à la musique. À travers ses degrés de densité expressive, il peut exprimer l'inavouable et l'indicible. Du mutisme au geste qui signifie, la communication non verbale offre un vaste champ d'expérimentation des textes et des œuvres d'art. The unsaid is to literature what silence is to music. Varying in degrees of expressiveness, it communicates what cannot be admitted or spoken of. From mutism to telling gestures, non-verbal communication provides a vast area of experimentation for texts and artworks.
