From Whitney to Chomsky : essays in the history of American linguistics by John Earl Joseph( Book )

15 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is "American" about American linguistics? Is Jakobson, who spent half his life in America, part of it? What became of Whitney's genuinely American conception of language as a democracy? And how did developments in 20th-century American linguistics relate to broader cultural trends? This book brings together 15 years of research by John E. Joseph, including his discovery of the meeting between Whitney and Saussure, his ground-breaking work on the origins of the "Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis" and of American sociolinguistics, and his seminal examination of Bloomfield and Chomsky as readers of Saussure

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

21 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 191 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 by Sheila M Embleton( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 160 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

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

20 editions published in 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 33 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
