Problems and Methods in Linguistics. Language and Style Series, VII.
Wartburg, Walther v.; Ullmann, Stephen
The present volume (originally published in German under the title "Einfuhrung in Problematik und Methodik der Sprachwissenschaft" by Max Niemeyer Verlag, Tubingen, in 1943) contains a "clear, elegant and non-technical introduction into some of the fundamental problems of general linguistics, enlivened by numerous examples, mainly from the Romance languages, many of which were collected by the author himself while working on his dictionaries." The second edition, published in German in 1962 and in French in 1963, was revised and brought up to date by the author and by Stephen Ullmann, who also contributed two new chapters, one on historical phonology and another on stylistics. This English edition was translated from the 2nd French edition (Presses Universitaires de France, Paris, 1963) by Joyce M.H. Reid. (AMM)
