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.

Series Title: narr studienbücher
Description:

Dieses Buch gibt Studierenden des Spanischen ein zugängliches und zugleich wissenschaftlich fundiertes Grundlagenwerk zur Lautlehre ihres Studienfachs an die Hand. Es verknüpft bewährtes Basiswissen mit neueren theoretischen Ansätzen (u.a. Merkmalsgeometrie, Optimalitätstheorie, Autosegmental-Metrisches Modell) und führt in den Umgang mit der Sprachanalysesoftware Praat ein. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf prosodischen Phänomenen wie Silbe, Akzent, Rhythmus und Intonation. Spanisch wird hier nicht als homogene Sprache aufgefasst; amerikanische und europäische Varietäten erfahren vielmehr eine gleichberechtigte Darstellung. Ein vertiefter Einblick in die lautliche Struktur wird u.a. durch die Gegenüberstellung mit weiteren romanischen und nicht romanischen Sprachen sowie durch die Kontrastierung mit dem Deutschen ermöglicht.
