C.Appendix: Appraisals of Zellig S. Harris, 1962–1993††

†† The journal “Langages” (Paris) published as late as September 1990 as its number 99 an issue entitled “Les grammaires de Harris et leurs questions”, containing the following articles (listed below) – in addition to Harris (1990) – which are of relevance here: Daladier (1990a, b), Gross (1990), Lentin (1990), Ryckman (1990). – The present list is a rather restricted one focussing on publications with direct reference to Harris; however, for a more adequate picture of Harris’ direct influence on 20th-century linguistic thought, the work of not only of Noam Chomsky but also that of many other scholars should be consulted, such as Henry Hiż, Aravind K. Joshi, Ellen Prince, and others associated with the University of Pennsylvania, and Ralph Grishmann, Richard Kittredge, Naomi Sager, and many others who came under his influence during Harris’ years at Columbia University in New York City from around 1980 onwards. A list of Harris’ former M.A. (e.g., John Robert Ross in 1964) and Ph.D. (e.g., Noam Chomsky in 1955) students is a desideratum too, perhaps not only for historiography of North American linguistics in the mid-20th century.
