Roman Jakobson's writings range over the entire field of general
linguistics, as well as embracing Slavic linguistics and literature
theory. Jakobson has had a tremendous influence on the development of
linguistic theory. He was a founder of and prime mover in the Prague
Linguistic Circle. On the basis of the new structuralist concepts, he
set forth bold theories of general linguistics and illustrated them
with brilliant demonstrations based on Slavic and other
languages. Taking a leading role in the elucidation of the structural
linguistic field of phonology, Jakobson used these insights to develop
new trends in historical phonology. Altogether, his linguistics
appears to incorporate the technical design of modern theoretical
concepts, but at the same time transcends purely formal modeling
through its interdisciplinary focus upon historical and poetic
matters. Jakobson was enormously successful in presenting innovative
theoretical insights and relating them to possible practical
applications. Specifically, his work on the general processes of
language acquisition and loss, on child language and aphasia, opened
up entirely new methods for linguists and doctors alike.

The series Selected Writings represents the whole range of Roman
Jakobson's fields of research.
