(Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science 18.1)

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. Institutions which emerged over the
ages are considered, concerned with the study, organisation,
documentation, and distribution as well as 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.
