Abstract:

Eight Decades of General Linguistics presents the key lectures delivered at
the eighteen conferences organized by the Permanent International Committee of
Linguists and also a history of the Committee itself. The contributions of
outstanding scholars such as Otto Jesperson, Louis Hjelmslev, André Martinet,
Uriel Weinreich, Noam Chomsky and many other linguists cannot be
over-estimated. The majority of the papers address a radically new topic, each
of which became one of the central issues in subsequent linguistic research.
In addition to their empirical findings and/or the theoretical innovations
presented in their papers, each contribution is still interesting and pivotal
to the development of contemporary linguistics.




Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
