Book Information


Title: Linguistic Speculations
Written By: Fred W. Householder

This 1974 book is a personal survey by an eminent linguist of most branches of
linguistics, setting out its position, questioning some underlying assumptions,
and in general testing the adequacy of descriptive theories. Though the
underlying theory is basically that of transformational-generative linguistics,
there are many queries and disagreements, some of which might be called
structuralist in a broad sense, or even taxonomic. The particular problems
chosen are those which have forced themselves on Professor Householder
during a lifetime of reading, teaching and writing about linguistics, including the
justification of linguistic research itself.
