Linguistics and pseudo-linguistics : selected essays, 1965-1985 by Robert A Hall( )

15 editions published in 1987 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The doctrines of transformational-generative grammar (as promulgated in 1957, with frequent later emendations) have on occasion been criticised, sometimes severely. Such criticism have, however, appeared mostly in article-form, and mostly in relatively inaccessible places. Discussions in bookform have been rare. In this book, the criticism offered by Professor Hall over more than twenty years have been brought together. They cover the range of linguistic structure (phonology, morphosyntax, and semantics), general theory, and the history of linguistics. In these essays, the many short-comings of transformational-generative grammar are revealed by critical examination, with inevitably negative conclusions. The two final essays of the book deal with parallel aberrations in current literary theory, especially Derridian "radical skepticism concerning language" and "deconstruction", as viewed from a linguistic stand-point
Proto-romance morphology by Robert A Hall( )

14 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume deals with the reconstructed morphology of Proto-Romance. It is the third in a series by this author. The first volume (1974, Elsevier) deals with the external history of the Romance languages: the conditions under which they developed, were used, and (in some instances) went out of use. The second volume (1976, Elsevier) treats the phonology of their common source, Proto-Romance. Together these three volumes aim to cast light, not only on Popular Latin speech by means of its surviving elements in the Romance languages, but also on the extent to which the comparative method can be regarded as valid and useful in instances where no attestations are available for a language as closely related to the reconstructed proto-language as high Classical Latin was to Proto-Romance
Leonard Bloomfield, essays on his life and work by Robert A Hall( )

15 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studie over de Amerikaanse taalkundige (1887-1949)
A life for language : a biographical memoir of Leonard Bloomfield by Robert A Hall( )

15 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonard Bloomfield (1887-1949) was one of the greatest linguists of the twentieth century. He devoted his entire life to a thorough-going study of language, its structure and its use, summed up in masterly fashion in his book Language (1933). After his premature death at the age of 62, his work was at first acclaimed as an exemplary application of the scientific method to linguistics, but then fell into unjustified neglect. Now that the centenary of his birth has passed, the time has come for the story of Bloomfield's life and work to be recounted in a biography. Accordingly, basing his discus
Linguistics and your language by Robert A Hall( Book )

49 editions published between 1363 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a brief, popular discussion of a number of problems connected with language, and of the science of language- linguistics- and what it can contribute to the solution of these problems. There have been a number of recent expositions of linguistics, particularly Hackett's A Course in Modern Linguistics; their purpose, however, and their scope are somewhat different from those of this book. The aim of this book is not to give so thorough a discussion of linguistic science, as does Hockett, for instance; on the other hand, it stresses somewhat more than previous works the conclusions of linguistics and their implications for our society. It is, to a certain extent, a tract addressed to the general public, in favor of a scientific attitude towards language and of linguistic relativism and tolerance, but including only as much detailed scientific analysis as is necessary to justify or exemplify its statements and conclusions

Sound and spelling in English by Robert A Hall( Book )

26 editions published between 1961 and 1971 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is designed to provide an understanding of the relation between writing and speech, without which, the author feels, the problem of teaching children to read accurately and effectively will never be solved. Writing is simply a way of representing speech and our conventional systems of orthography are always incomplete and inaccurate in their representation of language as it is spoken. We must first know what the sounds of English are and then must see how, and to what extent, they are presented in spelling. When we know the relationships of letters to sounds, we can then see whether some English spellings are more straightforward and systematic than others. If degrees of complication exist in the way words are written, they must be classified and taken into account when planning the order in which we teach children to read and spell words. The author discusses the phonemes and graphemes of English, how graphemes represent phonemes in English, regularity and irregularity in English graphemics, and regularity and gradation in teaching reading and spelling. Bibliographic references conclude each chapter. (Amm)

An essay on language by Robert A Hall( Book )

14 editions published in 1968 in 3 languages and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents this monograph as essentially a "prise de position" with regard to certain of the central questions in current debates over the nature of human linguistic systems and techniques of analyzing and describing them. While it is presumed that the reader is already acquainted with the issues being debated in linguistics in the 1960's, a short glossary of the most important terms is appended. Chapters are: (1) Non-Linguistic Premises, (2) The "Life-Cycle" of the Idiolect, (3) Language in Society, (4) The Characteristics of Language Structure, (5) The Description of Linguistic Structure, (6) Language Changes--But How?, (7) Language Changes--But Why?, (8) Linguistics and Other Disciplines, and (9) The Function of Linguistics. A brief conclusion and bibliography (in addition to the glossary) conclude the text. (Amm)
