100 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pioneering linguist Benjamin Whorf (1897–1941) grasped the relationship between human language and human thinking: how language can shape our innermost thoughts. His basic thesis is that our perception of the world and our ways of thinking about it are deeply influenced by the structure of the languages we speak. The writings collected in this volume include important papers on the Maya, Hopi, and Shawnee languages as well as more general reflections on language and meaning

The study of language; a survey of linguistics and related disciplines in America by John B Carroll( Book )

78 editions published between 1953 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emphasizing the field of linguistics, this book describes the history, scope, problems, and current state of the study of language and communication in the united states. The major portion of the book, devoted to linguistic science, is comprised of (1) explanations of how linguistic science compares, from the historical and descriptive points of view, the structures and characteristics of both well and lesser known language systems, (2) descriptions of linguistic methodology procedures, and (3) clarification of such broadly significant problems as the classification of languages by types and the differences in the ways languages "encode" experience. In discussions of the independently conceived language study theories developed in the related disciplines of linguistics, psychology, the social sciences, philosophy, education, communication, and the study of speech, emphasis is put on the feasibility of interdisciplinary cooperation in merging all of the divergent theories into one really effective communication science, with potentially far reaching effects in both education and the social sciences. Also included is an examination of the organizations, personnel, and publications in the field of linguistic science, and in related fields, that might support advances in the study of language. Addenda contain ample text documentation and an extensive list of pertinent references. This document is available for $5.00 from harvard university press, cambridge, mass. 02138. (ab)
Language comprehension and the acquisition of knowledge by John Bissell Carroll( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirteen papers given by language specialists are presented. These analyze special linguistic (semantic) problems that occur when interconnected strings of sentences constitute data base; they also analyze special psychological problems (of memory, inference, and motivation) that occur when human subjects are exposed to discourse materials in laboratory or real-life settings. Workshop questions to be considered were: (1) Exactly what is "comprehension" of language?; (2) Can one identify distinct processes in comprehension?; (3) In what senses can there be different degrees, levels, or types of comprehension?; (4) How can we measure comprehension in terms of these levels or types?; (5) What factors in language stimulus, the situation or receiver influence degree and manner of comprehension?; And (6) What is relation between immediate comprehension and its representation in memory either on long or short term basis? Author and Subject Indexes are included. (Nf)

Language, thought, and reality by Benjamin Lee Whorf( Book )

47 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whorf gilt neben Edward Sapir und Franz Boas als bedeutendster amerikanischer Pionier auf den Gebieten der Linguistik, Sprachphilosophie und Kulturanthropologie. Im Hauptberuf Chemiker, beschäftigte er sich schon früh mit der Schriftkunst der Azteken und Maya sowie mit der Sprache der Hopi-Indianer. Die mit dieser Neuausgabe wieder vorliegenden Abhandlungen zur ´Metalinguistik´ analysieren nicht nur die Sprache selbst, sondern setzen sie in Beziehung zur übrigen Kultur der Gesellschaft. Auch wenn das Wissen inzwischen vorangeschritten ist, bleiben seine anschaulich geschriebenen und klar verständlichen Aufsätze von hohem Interesse
The ego and his own by Max Stirner( Book )

12 editions published between 1918 and 1971 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ego and His Own , the seminal defence of individualism, coloured the thinking of Friedrich Nietzsche, Max Ernst, Henrik Ibsen and Victor Serge, among many others, some of whom would vigorously deny any such influence in later years. Less reticent was Marcel Duchamp, who described Max Stirner as the philosopher most important to his work. Challenging the religious, philosophical and political constraints on personal freedom, Stirner criticizes all doctrines and beliefs that place the interests of God, the state, humanity or society over those of the individual. Anticipating the later work of nihilists, existentialists, and anarchists, The Ego and His Own upholds personal autonomy against all that might oppose it
The effectiveness of programmed "Grafdrils" in teaching the Arabic writing system by John B Carroll( Book )

5 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a final report of research in the teaching of the arabic writing system, conducted in the harvard summer school in 1962. a control group was taught arabic in the traditional grammar-translation method, for approximately 15 hours, while the experimental group used a set of self-instructional materials accompanied by tapes for the same amount of time. These programed materials called "grafdrils" originated in the phonetic script test of the modern language aptitude test and are organized into six phases--presentation, writing drill, graphic drill, sound drill, writing practice, and dictation drill. The technique involves basically "the systematic presentation of correlated visual and auditory stimuli in such a way that a subject can note these correlations and use them in making his responses to problems calling for the matching of a speech response to a visual stimulus or a written response to an auditory stimulus." The authors conclude from the results of the tests that the "grafdril" technique is in general "a more efficient method of teaching a writing system than either (a) a lecture-type classroom presentation, or (b) self-study from a textbook." The appendices to this report include sample "grafdril" sheets and tape-scripts, writing practices, instructions regarding preparation of a criterion test, a test sheet and a tape script. (Amm)

Linguaggio, pensiero e realtà by Benjamin Lee Whorf( Book )

10 editions published between 1970 and 2018 in Italian and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Che il nostro pensiero venga influenzato dalla lingua che parliamo, ovvero che sia la grammatica a condizionare la nostra visione del mondo, è una delle grandi ipotesi della linguistica contemporanea. Benjamin Lee Whorf ne condivide la paternità con Edward Sapir, e ai loro nomi è legato il cosiddetto <<relativismo linguistico>>, che trova importanti formulazioni nei saggi di Whorf qui raccolti. All'inizio questa prospettiva di ricerca si è attirata addirittura l'accusa di sovversione, perché osava postulare che alcuni popoli ritenuti <<primitivi>> avessero una struttura linguistica più ingegnosa di quelli evoluti, rovesciando un preconcetto diffuso. Ma non ha avuto vita facile neppure in seguito, quando si è imposta la tendenza a studiare gli universali del linguaggio, piuttosto che gli aspetti distintivi delle singole lingue. Ciononostante, con il determinismo lingua/cultura sostenuto da Whorf hanno dovuto continuare a confrontarsi fino a oggi tutte le teorie del funzionamento del linguaggio. E sono tuttora esemplari e ricche di implicazioni inesplorate le sue indagini sulle categorie grammaticali e sulla formazione delle parole
