Most widely held works by Charles Francis Hockett
A course in modern linguistics by Charles Francis Hockett( Book )
87 editions published between 1958 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,548 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( )
10 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1,170 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 percep

The quantification of functional load : a linguistic problem by Charles Francis Hockett( Book )
4 editions published between 1961 and 1966 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Measures of the linguistic load carried by a contrast are developed for three cases, in which the contrasts are taken to be, respectively, phonemic, allophonic, and componential. The load carried by a contrast is non-negative and zero if the 'contrasted' units are identical, or if neither occurs in any environment in which the other is found. The measure proposed is the change in entropy of the system if the contrasted phonemes are coalesced; some problems peculiar to the allophonic case are discussed. If each distinct bundle of components is an allophone, the entropy of a given system is independent of point of view (phonemic, allophonic, or componential). (Author)
