9780393003079: The Philosophy of Grammar (Norton Library)

"My endeavor has been, without neglecting investigation into the details of the languages known to me, to give due prominence to the great principles underlying the grammars of all languages, and thus to make my contribution to a grammatical science based at the same time on sound psychology, on sane logic, and on solid facts of linguistic history," wrote the great linguistic scholar Otto Jesperson, when he made this important study forty years ago. He had become convinced of the necessity of studying language through the observation of living speech and only secondarily by examination of written documents. The Philosophy of Grammar, a radical innovation in linguistics research when it was first published, is now a standard reference work and all students in the field should be familiar with it. The topics covered are living grammar, systemic grammar, parts of speech, the three ranks, junction and nexus, nexus-substantives, subject and predicate, object, case, number, person, sex and gender, comparison, time and tense, direct and indirect speech, classification of utterances, moods, and negation. Believing that a fixed terminology could be a hindrance to real understanding, Mr. Jesperson introduced new terms "neither very numerous nor very difficult" and discarded some he felt were outmoded. "The great merit of this work," commented the reviewer for The Times Literary Supplement, "seems to be in the thorough shaking-up which it gives to a great many venerated idols."

Descrizione libro W. W. Norton & Company. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 360 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 1.0in.This study grew out of a series of lectures Jespersen gave at ColumbiaUniversity in 1909-10, called An Introduction to English Grammar. It is the connected presentation of Jespersens views of the generalprinciples of grammar based on years of studying various languagesthrough both direct observation of living speech and written andprinted documents. The Philosophy of Grammar and Analytic Syntax setforth the most extensive and original theory of universal grammarprior to the work of Chomsky and other generative grammarians of thelast thirty years. Arne Juul and Hans F. Nielsen, in Otto Jespersen: Facets of His Life and WorkBesides being one of the most perceptive observers and originalthinkers that the field of linguistics has ever known, Jespersen wasalso one of its most entertaining writers, and reading The Philosophy of Grammar is fun. Read it, enjoy it. James D. McCawley, from the IntroductionOtto Jespersen (1860-1943), an authority on the growth and structureof language, was the Chair of the English Department at the Universityof Copenhagen. Among his many works are A Modern English Grammar and Analytic Syntax, the latter published by theUniversity of Chicago Press. This item ships from multiple locations.
