    Linguistic Theory in America
    Linguistics, the Cambridge survey by Frederick J Newmeyer( Book )

    151 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey is a comprehensive introduction to current research in all branches of the field of linguistics, from syntactic theory to ethnography of speaking, from signed language to the mental lexicon, from language acquisition to discourse analysis. Each chapter has been written by a specialist particularly distinguished in his or her field who has accepted the challenge of reviewing the current issues and future prospects in sufficient depth for the scholar and with sufficient clarity for the student. Each volume can be read independently and has a particular focus. Volume I covers the internal structure of the language faculty itself, while Volume II considers the evidence for, and the implications of, a generativist approach to language. Psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics are covered in Volume III, and Volume IV concentrates on sociolinguistics and the allied fields of anthropological linguistics and discourse and conversation analysis.--Several of the chapters in the work concentrate on the interface between different aspects of linguistic theory or the boundaries between linguistic theory and other disciplines. Thus in both its scope and in its approach the Survey is a unique and fundamental work of reference. It undoubtedly fulfils the editor's principal aim of providing a wealth of information, insight and ideas that will excite and challenge all readers with an interest in linguistics. 'The contributions are informed, up-to-date and lucid, and many of them make unusual - in fact, unprecedented - efforts to present opposing viewpoints fairly and to look at what they have in common rather than at what divides them. ...The mixture of detached overviews and strongly argued positions works very well, in my view, and the editor is to be congratulated for the high standards that are maintained throughout.--The tremendous intellectual energy and excitement of the field come through strongly, and I shan't hesitate to recommend many of the chapters to students.' -- The Times Higher Education Supplement

    Language form and language function by Frederick J Newmeyer( Book )

    28 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    The two basic approaches to linguistics are the formalist and the functionalist approaches. In this work, Frederick J. Newmeyer, a formalist, argues that both approaches are valid. However, because formal and functional linguists have avoided direct confrontation, they remain unaware of the compatibility of their results. One of the author's goals is to make each side more accessible to the other

    Generative linguistics : a historical perspective by Frederick J Newmeyer( Book )

    34 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and French and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Here together for the first time are all of Frederick J. Newmeyer's writings on the origin and development of generative grammar. Spanning a period of fifteen years, the essays address the nature of the 'Chomskyan Revolution', the deep structure debates of the 1970s, and the attempts to apply generative theory to second language acquisition. These articles, many of which have never been published before, will inevitably fan the fames of controversy still raging in this field. Newmeyer's audacious conclusions and his argument that generative semantics collapsed because it was empirically disproved challenge much current thinking. Written by one of America's most prominent linguists, the essays in Generative Linguistics provide a challenging re-appraisal of the 'Chomskyan Revolution' - the implications of which are still being debated some thirty years further on
