This alphabetical listing of more than 15,000 authors and their life-dates
aims to be 'universal' in the sense that it covers, as far as possible for
the work of a single individual, all linguistic traditions from the
earliest beginnings of reflection about the nature of language to the
present. The volume is the fruit of the compiler's many years at the helm
of Historiographia Linguistica: International Journal for the History of
the Language Sciences
(1973-) and it will be an invaluable resource for
scholars and editors alike. While biographical data may be regarded by some
as irrelevant or incidental to the history of particular linguistic ideas,
experience has proven the usefulness of such basic information. Many of us
can think of misrepresentations of chronology where the life-dates of an
author under discussion were either not known or were simply ignored. At
its most extreme, such ignorance could result in statements asserting that
Edward Sapir was a student of Benjamin Lee Whorf, and that the latter had
influenced the former in developing the famous
. But this index is not just for the beginning
scholar in need of guidance - it is an indispensable ready reference for
anyone in the field.

Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics
