Series Title: Studies in the History of the Language Sciences 115
Description:

This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 11th International
Conference on the History of the Language Sciences (Potsdam 2008) which are
especially representative of the concerns of the conference and its thematic
range. The reflection about language and the individual languages has
characterized cultures since ancient times and has brought forth different
traditions of the language sciences. The contributions cover the period from
antiquity to contemporary history. In addition to terminological and social history
approaches, they also include research results based on corpora or which
reconstruct theoretical approaches. More than other scholars, linguists are
turning to the history of their science for answers to current questions. This
underscores the value of the history of language sciences for understanding the
present state of linguistics and its development. Interdisciplinarity necessary for
the research of many issues and manifestations of language makes historical
reflections on the disciplines indispensable.
