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: Sprache(n) und Musik
Written By: Matthias Heinz
Edited By: Anja Overbeck
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Romance Linguistics 72

Sprache und Musik fordern als Zeichensysteme mit vielfachen Bezügen aufeinander einen pluri- und interdisziplinären Forschungszugang geradezu heraus. Die Akten zur Sektion «Musik und Sprache(n)» des XXXI. Romanistentages in Bonn entsprechen dem – ganz im Sinne der von Anfang an «transversalen» Ausrichtung des Tagungsprogramms. In insgesamt 18 Beiträgen zeigt sich eine breite thematische Auffächerung, die wichtige aktuelle Forschungsfragen spiegelt: Mehrere primär linguistisch und teils empirisch orientierte Beiträge rezipieren etwa die besonders in (Musik-) Semiotik und Kognitionswissenschaft rege Forschung zum Interagieren beider Ausdrucksformen. In weiteren Beiträgen werden einerseits übergreifende Themen der europäischen Sprach-, Musik- und Kulturgeschichte mit Anwendungsbeispielen kombiniert, andererseits Parallelen literarischer und musikalischer Ausdrucksformen in Autoren-, Werk- und Gattungsperspektive diskutiert. Dadurch werden Schnittstellen und Schnittmengen zwischen den Einzeldisziplinen sichtbar gemacht und transdisziplinäre Erschließungsmechanismen für die Phänomenbereiche Sprache und Musik herausgearbeitet.
