Note: This listing acknowledges the receipt of recent studies that seem to bear on linguistics, in particular the history of the discipline. Only the receipt of those books will be acknowledged separately which have been sent upon request. It should be pointed out that by accepting a book, the Editor implies no promise that it will be reviewed in HL. Reviews are printed as circumstances permit, and offprints are sent to the publishers of the works reviewed. The Editor encourages young scholars, in particular, to write him if they wish to review any of the books listed below; items preceded by an asterisk have already been chosen for review in one of the forthcoming issues of HL.

I. Meščaninov (174–76), and a number of his contemporaries, e.g., E. D. Polivanov (1891–1938), D. V. Bubrix (1890–1949), N. F. Jakovlev (b.1892), I. Ju. Kračkovskij (1883–1951), and others; this is followed by an account of the linguistic views of Ščerba, A. I. Smirnickij (1903–54), V. V. Vinogradov, and others.

Taunus : Scriptor Verlag , 262 pp. Paper, DM 29 ,-.[ Rather than presenting a ‘critique’ of Marr’s linguistic views, the book consists of the following parts: “Einleitung: Zur Kritik an der Lehre Marr’s” by the ed (5–20), which relates the criticisms of Stalin of 1950 and of more recent Marxist thinkers but adds nothing to refute Marr’s views in linguistic terms; Vladimir P. Nazarov, “Der gegenwärtige Stand der Erforschung der kaukasischen Sprachen” (21–61), which makes mention of Marr’s contribution to the field (21–24 passim), and Nikolaj Jakovlevič Marr (1864–1934), “Die japhetische Theorie: Allgemeiner Kurs der Lehre von der Sprache” (1927), translated for the first time into German (67–262) .]

comp. 1975 . Language Origins: A bibliography . 2nd revised and enlarged ed. (= Approaches to Semiotics, 44 .) [ 2 vols. ] The Hague & Paris : Mouton , xiv + 890 pp. in small-4°. Cloth, Hf1. 225 ,-. [ An alphabetical listing of ca. 11,000 titles – at times briefly annotated – “intended to cover aal works on the origins of language, and related topics, to the middle of 1972” (Foreword, p.v). This important bib. on the question of glottogenesis draws from various areas of scholarly activity throughout more than 2 millenia and may well reveal – as the compiler suggests (p.x) – apart from the general topic of language origin or origins, “aspects of a segment of intellectual history, on a theme which has received attention” for so many centuries and epochs of western civilization: “It has linked the ideas of such diverse individuals as Psammetichus (as reported by Herodotus), Plato, Lucretius, Gregory of Nyssa, Augustine of Hippo, Dante, Bacon, Akbar, Milton, Leibniz, Vico, Condillac, Diderot, Rousseau, Herder, Lomo-nosov, Monboddo, Renan, A. R. Wallace, Romanes, Tylor, Wundt, Jesper-sen, Sapir, Marr, Haldane, Dart, Bruner, and Chomsky, who have taken the trouble to explain why they think speculation about glottogenesis is futile”. The bib. is a mine for historians of linguistics and everyone who takes the trouble of reading it attentively from cover to cover since it contains important references to pre-1800 linguistic work mixed with often irrelevant 20th-century publications. A very detailed index of topics (812–90) increases the usefulness of the bib .]
* Hjelmslev, Louis . 1974 . Prolegomena zu einer Sprachtheorie . Transl, from the Dan. original of 1943 [ Omkring sprogteoriens grundlaeggelse ], with variants and additional bibliographical references from the 2nd rev. E. transl, by Francis J.

. 1975 . Roman Jakobsons phänomenologischer Strukturalismus (= Suhrkamp Taschenbuch; Wissenschaft, 116 .) Frankfurt/M. : Suhr-kamp , 214 pp. Paper, DM 9 ,-. [ Fr. version, Jakobson ou le structuralisme phénoménologique, Paris: Edit. Seghers, 1975; originally a 1974-Habilitationsschrift presented to the Faculty of Arts at the Univ. of Zürich, the study attempts to delineate the influence of Husserl’s phenomenological philosophy on Jakobson’s linguistic structuralism. Cf. H’s paper, “Jakobson und Husserl: Ein Beitrag zur Genealogie des Strukturalismus”, Tijdschrift voor Filosofie 35.560–607 (1973). While the book contains much useful bio-bibliographical information on Jakobson, and also interesting sketches of late 19th and early 20th century philosophical and psychological ‘trends’, the linguistic expositions must be read with a grain of salt .]
