Among the original findings and arguments contained herein: why "American structuralism" does not end with Chomsky, but begins with him; how Bloomfield managed to read Saussure as a behaviourist avant la lettre; why in the long run Skinner has emerged victorious over Chomsky; how Whorf was directly influenced by the mystical writings of Madame Blavatsky; and how the Whitney-Max Muller debates in the 19th century connect to the intellectual disparity between Chomsky's linguistic and political writings

Limiting the arbitrary : linguistic naturalism and its opposites in Plato's Cratylus and modern theories of language by John Earl Joseph( Book )

18 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea that some aspects of language are 'natural', while others are arbitrary, artificial or derived, runs all through modern linguistics, from Chomsky's GB theory and Minimalist program and his concept of E- and I-language, to Greenberg's search for linguistic universals, Pinker's views on regular and irregular morphology and the brain, and the markedness-based constraints of Optimality Theory. This book traces the heritage of this linguistic naturalism back to its locus classicus, Plato's dialogue Cratylus. The first half of the book is a detailed examination of the linguistic arguments i

The emergence of the modern language sciences : studies on the transition from historical-comparative to structural linguistics in honour of E.F.K. Koerner( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it is widely thought that structural linguistics began abruptly with the publication of Saussure's 'revolutionary' Course in General Linguistics, the work of E.F.K. Koerner has demonstrated that Saussure, for all his originality, remained true to the basic tenets of his 19th-century predecessors. In this volume, the development of modern linguistics before, during and after Saussure is traced in 20 studies honouring the scholar who has done more than anyone else to professionalize linguistic historiography during the last quarter century. Among the wide range of topics covered are
The emergence of the modern language sciences : studies on the transition from historical-comparative to structural linguistics in honour of E.F.K. Koerner( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alongside considerable continuity, 20th-century diachronic linguistics has seen substantial shifts in outlook and procedure from the 19th-century paradigm. Our understanding of what is really new and what is recycled owes a great debt to E.F.K. Koerner's minutely researched interpretations of the work of the field's founders and key transitional figures. At the cusp of the 21st century, some of the best known scholars in the field explore how these methodological shifts have been and continue to be played out in historical Romance, Germanic and Indo-European linguistics, as well as in work o

Ideologies of Language (RLE Linguistics A by John Earl Joseph( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the study of language ideologically neutral? If so, is this study objective and autonomous?One of the most cherished assumptions of modern academic linguistics is that the study of language is, or should be, ideologically neutral. This professed ideological neutrality goes hand-in-hand with claims of scientific objectivity and explanatory autonomy. Ideologies of Language counters these claims and assumptions by demonstrating not only their descriptive inaccuracy but also their conceptual incoherence
