A survey of structural linguistics by Giulio C Lepschy( Book )

184 editions published between 1966 and 2000 in 8 languages and held by 1,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, a revised and expanded English version of the author's Italian work "La Linguistica strutturale" (1961), is a survey of the main trends in structural linguistics intended not only for the linguist but for specialists in other fields and the general reader as well. The initial chapter, "Introductory Notions," discusses general linguistic problems. Subsequent chapters are devoted to: Ferdinand de Saussure, the Prague School (N.S. Trubetzkoi), the Copenhagen School (Louis Hjelmslev), the early development of American structuralism (Edward Sapir and Leonard Bloomfield), functional linguistics (Andre Martinet and Roman Jakobson), American structural linguistics (the Neo-Bloomfieldians), transformational grammar (Noam Chomsky), and mathematical linguistics and machine translation.

History of linguistics by Anna Morpurgo Davies( Book )

35 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'History of Linguistics', to be published in five volumes, aims to provide the reader with an authoritative and comprehensive account of the attitudes to language prevailing in different civilizations and in different periods by examining the very varied development of linguistic thought in the specific social, cultural and religious contexts involved. Issues discussed include the place of language in education, variation and prestige, and approaches to lexical and grammatical description. The authors of the individual chapters are specialists who have analysed the primary sources and produced original syntheses by exploring the linguistic interests and assumptions of particular cultures in their own terms, without seeking to reinterpret them as contributions towards the development of contemporary western conceptions of linguistic science. In 'Volume IV: Nineteenth Century Linguistics', Anna Morpurgo Davies shows how linguistics came into its own as an independent discipline separated from philosophical and literary studies and enjoyed a unique intellectual and institutional success tied to the research ethos of the new universities, until it became a model for other humanistic subjects which aimed at 'scientific status'. The linguistics of the nineteenth century abandons earlier theoretical discussions in favour of a more empirical and historical approach using new methods to compare languages and to investigate their history. The great achievement of this period is the demonstration that languages such as Sanskrit, Latin and English are related and derive from a parent language which is not attested but can be reconstructed

Language; an introduction by Louis Hjelmslev( Book )

22 editions published between 1963 and 1982 in Italian and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Hjelmslev (1899-1965), whose linguistic theories have been influential both in his native Denmark and throughout the world, here describes in larger perspective and in a manner intended for the layman, certain aspects of linguistic science. He begins by distinguishing the functional analysis of a single language from the description of a group of languages, and further distinguishes historical or genetic relations from typological or structural relations. After summarizing 19th- and 20th-century achievement in Indo-European comparative linguistics and surveying the classical Humboldtian typological classification, he proceeds to suggest that a satisfactory typology of languages based on their formal categories is the most important task facing linguists. His thesis is that beneath language usage lies a language structure which determines the identity and constancy of a language; fundamental rules can be found to govern that structure; and the transformation of languages can be conceived and described as a series of linguistic states defined in terms of the dictates of the structure. Included in this edition (which is translated by Francis J. Whitfield) is a new, final chapter which did not appear in the Danish edition. (Amm)
Opere scelte by Luigi Meneghello( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in Italian and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Della poliedrica opera di Meneghello, narratore, linguista, saggista, il volume offre una scelta rappresentativa, in una disposizione cronologica che permette di cogliere la sua unità tematica e stilistica. Ai libri dei primi anni Sessanta, "Libera nos a malo", sulla cultura del suo paese, e "I piccoli maestri", sulla sua esperienza di partigiano, ne seguono due degli anni Settanta, "Pomo pero", continuazione di "Libera nos", e "Fiori italiani", riflessioni sull'istruzione scolastica di un giovane italiano nato agli inizi degli anni Venti, e in generale sulla natura dell'educazione e su cosa significhi imparare una lingua letteraria e assimilare una cultura. Queste opere restituiscono luoghi della memoria e della vita quotidiana in una prosa personale, caratterizzata da un impasto linguistico che nasce dal dialetto, ricostruito con cura filologica, e da innesti di modi gergali, idiotismi, neologismi. Agli anni Ottanta appartengono "Jura", che riunisce saggi dedicati al commento e all"'autocommento", e "Leda e la schioppa", mentre "La materia di Reading" e "Quaggiù nella biosfera" raccolgono saggi dell'ultimo decennio. La scelta dei testi e il saggio introduttivo sono di Giulio Lepschy, grande linguista e amico personale di Meneghello. Il volume si arricchisce di una testimonianza della scrittore Domenico Starnone, che è stato uno degli sceneggiatori del film "I piccoli maestri"
