Madison, Wisconsin : The Hispanic Seminary of Medieval Studies , xlii, 233 pp. [ This vol. presents the first lexicon of medieval Aragonese, which is of particular philological importance because of the political independence of Aragon from Castilia and its far-reaching contacts with various other mediterranian countries of the time (as far as Greece), and thus offers a tremendous amount of variety not found in other parts of the Iberian peninsula. The text is based on the surviving mSS from the scriptorium of the Grand Master of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, Juan de Heredia (c.1308–1398), who during his various missions abroad had collected innumerable MS, including travel reports of Marco Polo, chronicles by Alfonso ‘el sabio’, translating them into Aragonese.

This history of computing, computers, and information manipulation consists of 4 chaps, and a conclusion. The first two chaps, are of particular interest, namely, “The birth of the computer” (4–47), which deals with the early history of calculating machines to the introduction of the first electronic ones, beginning with the work of Wilhelm Schickard (1592–1635) – misspelt in the index (p.226) as Shickard, Blaise Pascal (1623–62), Leibniz (1646–1716), Charles Babbage (1791–1871), Léon Bollée (1870–1913), Hermann Hollerith (1860–1929), which gave the machines its name, and many other pioneers, and “The first generation: 1950–1959” (48–88), following the developments and discoveries by Alan M. Turing (1912–1954), John von Neumann (1903–1957), Alonzo Church (1903–1937), and others. Although linguistic work is not mentioned in the book (Chomsky’s name appears in two footnotes, p.208, and with reference to Syntactic Structures, but not in the index), those interested in the history of American linguistics should not forget the impact that computer programs, mechanical translation projects, and ‘artificial intelligence’ had at that time, both intellectually and financially .]

The book consists of 6 chaps.: 1, “An American life” (1–23); 2, “Schoolbooks, schoolhouses, and moralisms” (24–47); 3, “Politics” (48–77); 4, “The Prompter [Webster’s short-lived magazine]” (78–91); 5, “Language” (92–113), which traces W’s interest in language and his work in lexicography from 1789 to the publication of An American Dictionary in January 1825 and its subsequent history, and 6, “Epilogue” (114–16).

As a result, part I (“Grundlagen”), carries chapters on Peirce (33–47), Charles William Morris (1901–1979), Saussure (58–67), Hjelmslev (6769), and “Das glossematische Zeichenmodell” (70–79). The other parts of this impressive volume deal with the following subjects: II, “Kommunikation und Kode” (121–250); III, “Verbale und vokale Kommunikation” (251–319); IV, “Nonverbale Kommunikation” (321–80); V, “Ästhetik und visuelle Kommunikation” (381–454), and VI, “Textsemiotik” (455525).
