Eight Decades of General Linguistics presents the key lectures delivered atthe eighteen conferences organized by the Permanent International Committee ofLinguists and also a history of the Committee itself. The contributions ofoutstanding scholars such as Otto Jesperson, Louis Hjelmslev, André Martinet,Uriel Weinreich, Noam Chomsky and many other linguists cannot beover-estimated. The majority of the papers address a radically new topic, eachof which became one of the central issues in subsequent linguistic research.In addition to their empirical findings and/or the theoretical innovationspresented in their papers, each contribution is still interesting and pivotalto the development of contemporary linguistics.
