A Leonard Bloomfield Anthology.
Hockett, Charles F., Ed.
This anthology of writings by the influential American linguist Leonard Bloomfield consists of selections intended to reveal "Bloomfield's way of working, his personality, his pet ideas, and his chief lines of work." Included are working articles, general statements of principles, book reviews and obituaries. Excluded are language teaching materials, selections from books still available in print, and most materials considered of primary interest to specialists in certain areas of linguistics such as Germanic philology. Among the articles are: "Sentence and Word,""Subject and Predicate," -A Set of Postulates for the Science of Language,""Literate and Illiterate Speech,""On Some Rules of Panini,""Linguistic Aspects of Science,""The Stressed Vowels of American English,""Linguistics as a Science,""Philosophical Aspects of Language," and "Meaning." The volume also contains an exhaustive eleven page bibliography of Bloomfield's works. Articles by Charles Hockett and William G. Moulton evaluating Bloomfield's contribution to linguistics are appended. Slections are arranged chronologically. (FWB)
