Abstract:

William Diver of Columbia University (1921-1995) critiqued the very roots of
traditional and contemporary linguistics and founded a school of thought that
aims for radical aposteriorism in accounting for the distribution of linguistic
forms in authentic text. Grammatical and phonological analyses of Homeric
Greek, Classical Latin, and Modern English reveal language to be an instrument
whose structure is shaped by its communicative function and by the peculiarly
human characteristics of its users. Diver's foundational works, many never
before published, appear here newly edited and annotated, with introductions by
the editors. The volume presents for the first time to a wide audience the depth
and originality of Diver's iconoclastic thought.
