This volume brings together a selection of revised papers, originally

grammars to new scientific propositions at the turn of the 19th century;
the second part carries articles devoted to a variety of topics in 19th and
20th century linguistics; and in the third section are united papers based
on plenary presentations, ranging from ancient Greek reflections upon
language to developments in Brazilian linguistics beginning with the
implantation of structuralist work by Joaquim Mattoso Câmara (1904–1970) in
the 1960s. In the concluding contribution, a survey of advances in the
history of the language sciences is offered.
