(Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science 18.2)


Writing in English, German or French, more than 300 authors provide a
historical description of the beginnings and of the early and
subsequent development of thinking about language and languages within
the relevant historical context. The gradually emerging institutions
concerned with the study, organisation, documentation, and
distribution are considered as well as those dealing with the
utilisation of language related knowledge. Special emphasis has been
placed on related disciplines, such as rhetoric, the philosophy of
language, cognitive psychology, logic and neurological science.

Volume 2 treats, in great detail and, at times quite innovatively, the
individual stages of development of the study of language as an
autonomous discipline, from the growing awareness in 17th and 18th
century Europe of genetic relationships among a host of languages to
the establishments of comparative-historical Indo-European linguistics
in the 19th century, from the generation of the Schlegels, Bopp, Rask,
and Grimm to the Neogrammarians and the application of the comparative
method to non-Indo-European languages from all over the globe.
Typological linguistic interests, first synthesized by Humboldt, as
well as the development of various other non-historical endeavours in
the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, such as language and
psychology, semantics, phonetics, and dialectology, receive ample
attention.
