 Abstract:
 
 This is the first complete study of the life and work of Johan Storm, one
 of the most admired linguists of the late nineteenth century. It presents
 his work on language in its entirety, covering his contributions to
 English philology, Romance languages and Norwegian.
 
 Andrew Linn describes Storm's position at the centre of a community of
 phoneticians, dialectologists, modern language teachers and language
 reformers, at a crucial period in the development of modern linguistics.
 He demonstrates the importance of Storm's ideas to the emergence of
 language study in its modern form, to the ousting of Classics by modern
 languages in school and university, and to contemporary debates on the
 standardization of Norwegian. He also highlights the ongoing relevance of
 Storm's work to the study and teaching of English and Romance languages,
 and to the fields of phonetics and dialectology.
