Title: Die Sprachwissenschaft des 20. Jahrhunderts [20th Century Linguistics]
Subtitle: Versuch einer Bilanz
Written By: Wolfgang Wildgen

Description:

Until now an overview of the history of linguistics during the 20th century
has been lacking. With this book, Wolfgang Wildgen fills this gap. Starting
with the predecessors of Saussure, the main chapters highlight the most
important trends. Special attention is given to sustainable approaches.
Wildgen also evaluates the yield of linguistic research and completes the
book by describing the challenges of the 21st century. An appendix
discusses the problem of the mathematization of linguistics.
