Title: Writings in General Linguistics
Written By: Ferdinand de Saussure
Translated By: Carol Sanders
Matthew Pires
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199261444
Description:

The first publication of the manuscript on general linguistics by Ferdinand
Saussure which in the form of his students' lecture notes helped shape the
thought of the twentieth century and which lay undiscovered in a Geneva
summerhouse for eighty years. The new work throws fresh light on central
aspects of Saussure's thought, including his famous oppositions between
form and meaning, the sign and what is signified, and language (langue) and
its performance (parole).
