Prague Linguistic Circle Papers Volume 1.
Travaux du cercle linguistique de Prague nouvelle serie.
The volume is the first one of the revived series of Travaux, which
was the well-known international book series of the classical Prague
Linguistic Circle, published in the years 1929-39. The tradition of
the Circle still attracts attention in broad circles of European and
American linguistics. The first volume of the new series is divided
into five sections: 1. Introductory papers characterizing the
development of the Prague School in the recent decades;
2. Methodological issues of structural and functional linguistics,
3. Sentence structure, 4. Discourse patterns, 5. Theory of
literature. In accordance with the tradition, the volume contains
contributions concerning issues of principle, empirical linguistic
studies, and also papers from the theory of literature. Contributions
