Linguistic Field(s): History of Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas was founded in
February 1984. Its aims are to promote and encourage the study of the history of
all branches of linguistic thought, theoretical and applied, and including non-
European traditions.

Its fields of interest include the history both of the major subject areas of
linguistics and also of more specialised topics, such as writing systems,
literacy, rhetoric, and the application of linguistic ideas within professional
and technical fields.
