Book Information


Title: History and Perspectives of Language Study
Edited By: Olga Mišeska Tomić
Milorad Radovanović
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 186

Each of the contributions in this volume expresses in some way the hope that it is possible to achieve an integrity of linguistics, understood as a science of man, in its psychological, sociological, pragmatic and cultural context. The first section focuses on the history of language study, the second section on the integrative description of facets of language, and the last section on the need for the study of language in context.
