Book Information


Title: Sprachdenken im Mittelalter [Linguistic Thought in the Middle Ages]
Subtitle: Ein Vergleich mit der Moderne
Written By: Angela Beuerle
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica

The volume focuses on the Latin tracts produced in Paris around 1270 by the
Danes Martinus and Boethius de Dacia on what is known as "modistic
grammar." The contours of this "medieval linguistics" become clear in the
comparison with two further approaches to linguistic theory - four tracts
by medieval Icelandic grammarians and Saussure's "Cours de linguistique
générale" as a fundamental work in modern linguistics. The comparison then
leads to a fundamental epistemological reflection on a possible typology of
theoretical constructs in linguistics.
