This is the first English version of a text out of print for more than
40 years, summarising the positions and key concepts of an influential
stream of linguistic thought. Using quotations as entries, J. Vachek
(1909-1997), a leading advocate of the Prague School, employed more
than 160 sources, papers and monographs, by well over 30
representatives of the school (Mathesius, Trnka, Skalika, Dane,
Dokulil, Mukaovsk�, Jakobson, Trubetzkoy, Isachenko, and others). The
dictionary both captures the pioneering efforts and achievements of
the school from its foundation in 1926, and provides a framework for
assessing the current state of affairs, attesting to its originality
and serving as a preventive to treading paths already explored. The
headword concepts are provided with French, German and Czech
equivalents and Vachek's original preface is supplemented by a
foreword which traces the development of the school up to the present
date and puts it into perspective.
