[ “The present book represents a return to the work of R[obert] B[enjamin] Lees [i.e., his The Grammar of English Nominalizations (The Hague: Mouton, 1960) and two later papers] in an effort to reevaluate it and see what, in the light of recent advances in TG-grammatical theory, might be salvaged from it. [Jerzy] Kuryłowiczߣs [(1895–1978)] distinction [of 1936 between ‘dérivation lexicale’ and ‘dérivation syntaxique’] will offer a starting point.” (Introduction, p.4). It has the following chaps.: 1, “Evidence of Words and Lexicons” (11–26); 2, “The Functions and Properties of the Lexicon” (27–52); 3, “The Sound-Meaning Relation” (53–70)- in which the author harks back to Sergej Iosifovič Karcevkijߣs (18841955) 1929 paper, “Du dualisme asymétrique [not: asymmetrique, as printed on p.366] du signe linguistique”, TCLP 1.88–93, repr. in 1956 in CFS 14.18–24; 4, “Lexical Issues and IE Languages” (71–83), followed by notes of this first ‘book’ (85–87). 5, “The Separation of Derivation and Affixation” (91–113); 6, “The Indo-European Posses-sional Adjectives in Serbocroation” (115–148); 7, “The Morphological Component: Affixation” (149–69); 8, “The Types of Lexical Derivations” (171–235), followed by ‘Notes to Book II’ (237–42). 10, “Lexical Performance” (245–80); 11, “The Intersection of the Diachronic and Synchronic Axes” (281–308), and 12, “Conclusions and Prospects” (309346), followed by ‘Notes to Book III’ (347–50).

Indices of Affixes and Derivations (375–77), Authors (379–81), and Subjects (383–89). – An (historically) interesting feature of B’s book is the recognition it bestows on the work and/or theoretical insights of Kuryłowicz and Karcevskij (see above) as well as of Aleksandar Belić (1876–1960) and Charles Ernest Bazell (b.1909) and the admission (p. 2) that “Chomskyߣs ‘Remarks on nomi-nalization’ returned us to Kuryłowiczߣs (1936) position.” ]

In particular, viable material can be found in the “Festschriften and Miscellanies” (13–23) and in the “Biographies” (23–40) sections, the latter containing accounts of the life and work of some 400 scholars – e.g., J.

The section on “History of linguistics” (82–91) is of course of prime interest, with some 175 entries for 1979, though other sections, in particular those dealing with linguistic terminology and philosophy of language should be consulted as well. Last but not least, the in dex of authors (675–747) should be made use of, as it frequently includes the names of authors treated, e.g., Saussure, Whitney, et al. ]

Chico, California : Scholars Press [for American Philological Association] , XI, 123 pp. [ This revised version of the authorߣs 1980 Princeton Univ. dissertation “attempts to show that the distinction between technical and philosophical grammar is not applicable to the Syntax of Apollonius Dyscolus [2nd century A.D.], since this work is founded on and utilizes theories concerning the origin of language, the epistemolo-gical status of linguistic data, the manner in which language performs its semantic function and the way in which expressions are said to be ‘correct’.” (Preface, p.ix). It consists of the following chapters: 1, “Introduction [General background & Apollonius Dyscolus]” (1 to 10); 2, “Apollonius’ Methodology” (11–19); 3, “The Orderliness of Syntax [Preliminaries, Analogy in syntax, and The order of the intelligibles]” (21–39); 4, “Pathology [‘irregularity’] and Regularity” (41–49), and 5, “Conclusion” (51–53).

[… It] “is mainly concerned with the mental process of linguistic and nonlinguistic human action. […] Most of this book was written during my stay in Berkeley 1975 and 1976. This explains why not many references to literature published after this time can be found in it” (Introduction, pp.1 and 4). The book has 3 major sections: I, “Action theoretic explanations [the concept & establishment of control and the logic of ability]” (5–49); II, “Describing action [controllers]” (51–96), and III, “Biosystems and language [genetics, embryology and the language analogy]” (99–119).

They need the physical and mental equipment to take part in the many social activities which alone provide the context for a relevant conceptualisation of what language is.” (Preface, p.[vii]. Rather than supplying regular chapter headings, the author has chosen to give quotes from James Harris’ (1708–1780) Hermes, or A Philosophical Inquiry Concerning Universal Grammar (London: Nourse, 1751; 4th ed., 1786).

It is devoted to a careful analysis of John Stuart Millߣs (1806–1873) philosophical semantics which of course is of interest to linguists too, given the association of philosophy and linguistics of long standing, from the Greeks to the present. The study has the following chapter headings: 1, “The classification of names in A System of Logic [published by J. S.

. 1982 . La Langue française de la technique et de la science . Wiesbaden : Oscar Brandstetter Verlag , 259 pp. [ The book constitutes a broad analysis of “language resources that constitute French specialized technological and scientific texts” (English summary, p.258). At the same time, it is a thorough introduction to the problems and methods of investigation of language for special purposes, not simply the exclusive treatment of scientific and technical terminologies as is customary in most works of this kind. In fact, it treats all levels of language, from the grapheme to the text. The book consists of 5 chapters: 1, “Délimitation et diversité de la langue de spécialité” (11–32); 2, “Spécificité linguistique de la langue technique et scientifique” (33–85); 3, “Formation et signification des termes” (86–157); 4, “Structure terminologique” (158–79); 5, “Application et appréciation” (180–204).

The Tokugawa period (1603–1868) is described as the phase during which the national grammatical tradition in Japan found its full expression, including the indulgence toward foreign influence (2628); even the modern Japanologist Motoki Tokieda (1900–1967) followed the national tradition in his linguistic analysis (p.34).

Riedlinger, and published in Lausanne & Paris in 1916, not in Geneva in 1915 as can still be found in various linguistics publications! To this the translator has added an introduction (ix-xvi), in which he sets out his reasons for translating the ‘vulgata’ text, and several footnotes – though nothing approaching a general annotation of the in fact unauthorized edition of Saussureߣs Geneva lectures. In the margins the page references to the 3rd (1931) and subsequent editions of the Cours have been added, thus allowing easy comparison between the English translation and the French original. – By the way, the French text has at least 3 occurrences of the term ‘structure’ (cf. pp.180, 244, and 256), not just one as suggested by the present index. Also, like Bally & Sechehaye, the technical use of ‘terme’ in Saussureߣs theory has not been recognized. In view of the less than adequate earlier translation of 1959 (reprinted as late as 1974), the present effort will be welcomed by many students interested in the foundations of modern linguistic thought .]

There follow: IX, “Die historisch-vergleichende Sprachwissenschaft in Europa”, organized along languages and language branches treated rather than individual countries (107–151), though with special attention to the work of Benveniste and Kuryłowicz on the laryngeal theory and brief mentions of scholars in Italy (138–39), Spain (139–40), Switzerland (140–41), Germany (142–44), and Eastern Europe (144–46); X, “Die Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft in Frankreich” (153–222), with individual sections on Martinet (153–88), Lucien (Valérius) Tesnière (1893–1954) and Gustave Guillaume (1875–1960) – cf. pp.188–207 and 207–222, respectively. The last two chapters are on “Die Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft in England” (223–49), from Sweet to Wittgenstein and Ull-mann via Daniel Jones, Alan Henderson Gardiner and John Rupert Firth, and on “Die Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft in Deutschland” (251–78). which begins with the ‘Humboldt-Renaissance’ in the work of Leo Weisgerber (b.1899) and deals in particular with the ‘Bonner Schule’ associated with Weisgeber, esp. Hans Glinz and Helmut Gipper. The final section deals with the contribution of Eugenio Coseriu (276–78). Bib. (279–315), Addenda (p.317), but no index .]
Travaux d’Histoire des Théories Linguistiques No. 11 ( Série II ), 1982 . Paris : Equipe d’Histoire des Théories Linguistiques, Département de Recherches Linguistiques, Université Paris 7, [VI], 67 pp. [ Prints three papers on medieval linguistic thought: “La grammaire spéculative” by Irène Rosier (1–29); “La logique mediévale et la théorie de la supposition” (31–57) et “Grammaire et théologie au Moyen Âge” by Alain de Libera and Jean Jolivet (59–67), respectively .]
Travaux d’Histoire des Théories Linguistiques No. 11 ( Série VIII ), [VIII], 21 pp. Paris : Equipe d’Histoire des Théories Linguistiques, Département de Recherches Linguistiques . [ Apart from the ‘Présentation’, i.e., the introductory note explaining the purpose of this enterprise (which is identical in each subseries), the present issue carries one paper only, namely, “Linguistique et anthropologie en France (1600–1900)” by Sylvain Auroux. This sketch of the relationship between linguistics and anthropology in France, especially from the late 18th century to 1900, contains a number of original findings, most of which would require further, more detailed investigation (pp.6–16). Earlier periods too – the entire range of inquiry conducted by 17th and 18th century missionaries – deserves no doubt monograph treatment .]
. 1982 . Selected Papers in Structural Linguistics: Contributions to English and general linguistics written in the years 1928–1978 . Afterword by Roman Jakobson . Vilém Fried ( Editor ). (= Janua Linguarum; Series maior, 88 .) Berlin-New York-Amsterdam : Mouton Publishers (distributed by Walter the Gruyter, Berlin & New York) , XI, 392 pp. [ An important selection from the writings of the late founding member of the Cercle linguistique de Prague, Bohumil Trnka (1895–1981), many of which translated here for the first time into English (usually from his native Czech) by the editor, who also supplied a biographical introduction (1–19), though, for reasons indicated in note 4 (p.15), he was unable to include a full bibliography of Trnkaߣs writings. The material is organized under 5 headings: I, “General Linguistics” (23–109); II, “Synchronic Phonology” (113167); III, “Statistical Linguistics” (171–201); IV, “Historical Linguistics: Diachronic phonology and morphology” (205–284), and V, “Synchronic Morphology, Syntax and Style” (287–381). Index of names (385–88); index of subjects (389–92). – Of particular interest to historians of linguistics may be his 1952 paper, “Zur Erinnerung an August Schleicher” (61–69), the distinguished 19th-century Indo-Eu-ropeanist and Slavicist, to whose work Trnka refers on various occasions in his writings; cf. in particular his 1941 paper on the problem of style (364–81), esp. 364–65, 377–78. – Another paper of interest to readers of HL is no doubt T’s paper, first published in English translation in 1966 (as an appendix to Josef Vachekߣs The Linguistic School of Prague (Bloomington: Indiana Univ. Press), 152165, “Linguistics and the Ideological Structure of the Period” (4960), even though T. was not quite right in assuming that Schleicher attempted to apply Darwinߣs findings to linguistics (p.49) .]
1980 . La lengua española en Flandes en el siglo XVII: Contribución al estudio de la interferencias léxicas y de su proyección en el español general . Prologo de A. Zamora Vincente . Madrid : Insula , 245 pp. [ Remarkable investigation into a rather neglected area of research, namely, Spanish in Flanders during 1555–1713. Although the author has based his corpus on J. A. Vincartߣs Relación de la campaña de Flandes en 1647 only, he has made use – in his computer-guided research – of a number of older dictionaries of Spanish, such as the one by A. de Palencia of 1490 as well as the 1726–39 Diccionario de Autoridades (cf. bib. references on pp.235–36). – Cf. also the monograph-length study by the same author, “Contribución al estudio de la lexicografía española en Flandes en el siglo XVII (1599–1705)”, BRAE 59.289–369 (1979) .]
Voortgang van het onderzoek . III1 ( 1982 ), 284 pp. Amsterdam : Faculteit der Letteren, Subfaculteit Nederlands, Vrije Univ. Amsterdam . [ This working papers issue publishes a dozen studies devoted to literary and linguistic ideas concerning the study of Dutch. It includes historical studies, such as the one by J. Knol, “Nederlands voor Duit-sers in de achttiende eeuw: Nadere gegevens over Matthias Kramer [(1640–С.1730)] en J. C. Cuno [(1708-c.1780)]” (157–73), which deals with the early 18th-century grammar of Dutch ascribed to Kramer as well as others attributed to Cuno, and the other by Jan Noordegraaf, “Algemene grammatica en logische analyse: Nederlandse taalkunde in de jaren vijftig van de negentiende eeuw” (174–208), in which the author shows that 19th-century Dutch linguists (influenced by German grammarians such as Ferdinand Becker, J. C. A. Heyse, and H. Steinthal) rejected, among other things, the idea of language as anything comparable to a ‘living organism’, thus making the critique of this idea advanced by Bréal, Gaston Paris, and other French scholars look much less innovative than recent studies on Saussure and his ‘French connection’ have claimed .]
eds. 1982 . Here and There: Cross-linguistic studies on deixis and demonstration . (= Pragmatics & Beyond, III:2/3 .) Amsterdam & Philadelphia : John Benjamins Publ. Co. , V, 296 pp. [ Following an introductory survey by the editors (1–12), the volume prints contributions (all in English except for one by Fritz Pasierbsky on the historical development of ‘Personendeixis’ in Chinese) devoted to aspects of means of deixis in various European, African, Far Eastern as well as Australian languages. The contributors to the volume (which is the outgrowth of a workshop held at the annual meeting of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft held in March 1979 in Tübingen) consist of the following researchers: Clifford Hill, Veronika Ehrich, Hubertus Opalka, Volker Heeschen, Ulrike Mosel, Priska-Monika Hottenroth, István Bátori, Christa Hauenschild, Dietrich Hartmann, Florian Coulmas, Eckehart Malotki, and Peter Austin. The index of names (287–90) makes it obvious that the writings of Karl Bühler (1879–1963) on the subject are the most frequently referred to publications; indeed, there is hardly a contribution that does not refer, critically and/or aprov-ingly, to the pioneering work of Bühler. One therefore regrets that there is not a single reference to one of the most prominent interpreter in English of Bühlerian ideas in North America, Paul L. Garvin, in this volume. – An index of subjects (291–96) concludes the collection .]

There follow sections on “Deutsche Sprachinseln in Mittel-, Südost- und Ost-Europa” under headings such as 3.1 “Binnensprachinseln”, e.g., “Schwäbische Kolonie in Westpreußen”; 3.2 “Außensprachinseln”, e.g., “Sprachinsel Siebenbürgen (Altland, Nöserland, Burzenland)”; 3.3 “Außensprachinseln der Neuzeit”, e.g., “Sprachinseln in Bessarabien”, and an appendix on (apparently) lost handwritten or typed dissertations and theses. This highly complex bib. is prefaced by an introduction (xxvii-xlvi), a list of sources (xlvii-1) and of acronyms (li-lv), and a general section concerning the study of dialects (1–24).
