It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Reinventing Structuralism
Subtitle: What Sign Relations Reveal About Consciousness
Written By: Rodney B. Sangster
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 264

Structuralism was abandoned before its potential as a cognitive science could be realized. Reviving it with what we know today provides new insights into the structure of consciousness. Treating the relations between actual linguistic signs as organic properties of mind reveals a set of conceptual relations that lie beyond the constructs of cognitive psychology, in the transpersonal realm of higher order consciousness. This is where correlates can be found between linguistic sign relations, ultimate states of consciousness, and the elemental structure of myths.
