The Phonology of Baudouin de Courtenay.
This paper seeks to answer remarks by Frank Hausler and others minimizing the significance of Baudouin de Courtenay's contribution to descriptive linguistics. The author emphasizes the psychological orientation in the development of Baudouin's work in phonemics and morphology, and seeks to reconcile Baudouin's theories with later criticism based on antimentalist grounds. Differences with the Prague School's emphasis on "meaning-differentiating" function are also considered. (VM)
