Abstract:

What was the first language, and where did it come from? Do all languages
have properties in common? What is the relationship of language to thought?
Fifty Key Thinkers on Language and Linguistics explores how fifty of the
most influential figures in the field have asked and have responded to
classic questions about language. Each entry includes a discussion of the
person's life, work and ideas as well as the historical context and an
analysis of his or her lasting contributions. Thinkers include:

*Aristotle
*Samuel Johnson
*Friedrich Max Müller
*Ferdinand de Saussure
*Joseph H. Greenberg
*Noam Chomsky

Fully cross-referenced and with useful guides to further reading, this is
an ideal introduction to the thinkers who have had a significant impact on
the subject of Language and Linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics
                            General Linguistics
                            History of Linguistics

Written In: English (eng )
