Most widely held works by Charles Francis Hockett
A course in modern linguistics by Charles Francis Hockett( Book )

120 editions published between 1958 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book covers a wider range of topics than any other recent work in English. In general it is clearly written; in spots it is even entertaining, which is more than one has a right to expect in a textbook. Hockett has an enviable gift for introducing topics which are novel to the general reader and making them understandable. The recapitulation of new terminology and the exercises at the end of chapters are also a pedagogically commendable device. One senses that this book has grown out of the practice of a stimulating and successful class lecturer

Refurbishing our foundations : elementary linguistics from an advanced point of view by Charles Francis Hockett( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay challenges several patterns of thinking common in twentieth-century linguistics. The most pervasive of these is our habit of looking at language from the point of view of the speaker. When we take, instead, that of the hearer, matters fall into place in a new way. In syntax, we are led to examine the evidence available to hearers for interpreting what they hear, and this reveals both the true nature and the locus existendi of "deep structure". Chomsky's 1957 diagnosis of the then prevalent syntactic theory is upheld, though his proposed remedy is not. The principle of Gestalt perception yields a characterization of the word quite different from Bloomfield's classic definition, lending support of new kind to Pike's mid-century views of the relation between phonemics and grammar. In morphology, assuming the hearer's standpoint forces the abondonment of the "atomic morpheme" that has prevailed in America since the post-Bloomfieldians, together with much of classical morphophonemics, and by a domino effect this in turn undermines much of generative phonology

The quantification of functional load : a linguistic problem by Charles Francis Hockett( Book )

6 editions published between 1961 and 1966 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measurement criteria are developed for the quantification of the functional load of the phonemes of a language. The concept of functional load or yield, from certain theories of linguistic change, states that some contrasts between the distinctive sounds of a language do more work than others by occurring more frequently and in more linguistic environments than other contrasts. The criteria developed, which utilize shannon's measure of entropy, can be used to measure the work of phonemes, allophones, or components and are thus applicable in all current theories of phonology. It is suggested that there is a balance point in the phonological system of any language between the force of least effort leading to lowest redundancy and the need to be understood, which leads to lower relative entropy.
