Fundamentals of language by Roman Jakobson( Book )

129 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 2,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jakobson and Halle's initial statement of the principles of linguistic organization should be made available to all future generations of linguists. It builds a solid foundation for Saussurean thinking about linguisic oppositions and establishes distinctive feature theory as the basis of their formal treatment." Prof. Dr. William Labov, University of Pennsylvania, Department of Linguistics
The sound shape of language by Roman Jakobson( Book )

74 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reading this volume transported me back to Harvard and MIT lecture halls of the 1960s, where weekly Roman Jakobson would spellbind his audience (this reviewer included), developing his vision of language through impassioned exposition, deft and devastating allusions to critical literature, anecdotes with the force of parables, metaphors of mythic imagery, and above all else overriding verbal artistry: truly in his own phrase, 'In the poetry of grammar'. The Sound Shape of Language, his collaboration with Linda R. Waugh, a scholar who has devoted considerable attention to an exposition and elaboration of Jakobsonian views, fortunately has preserved in print the authoritative lectorial voice." Michael Silverstein in Journal of Communication

Essais de linguistique générale by Roman Jakobson( Book )

268 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Première édition en français, Ed. de Minuit, 1963. Onze essais (dont le plus ancien date de 1949) portant sur les problèmes fondamentaux qui se posent à la linguistique structurale: en phonologie, grammaire, sémantique, rhétorique, poétique, etc. Parmi les chapitres importants on note: Phonologie et phonétique (le principe de binarité) - Aspects linguistiques de la traduction - Linguistique et théorie de la communication (la notion de communication est primordiale dans l'oeuvre de Jakobson) - Linguistique et poétique. L'auteur s'efforce sans relâche d'aborder linguistiquement les problèmes de sens. La préface de Nicolas Ruwet, p. 7-21, permet au lecteur peu averti de s'orienter avec rapidité. Ce livre se lit sans difficulté véritable, et même parfois avec amusement. Sa lecture partielle est possible dès la première année du cycle collégial. Fondamental
Child language. Aphasia and phonological universals by Roman Jakobson( Book )

89 editions published between 1941 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is an English translation of the author's classic "Kindersprache, Aphasie und allgemeine Lautgesetze," first published in 1941. It is considered the most representative and comprehensive of the author's phonological writings, dealing not only with phonological typology but related problems of language acquisition and phonemic regression as well. By such statements as "the development of child language, the dissolution of aphasic language, and the synchrony and diachrony of the languages of the world all exhibit a sequence of common laws of solidarity," the author contributed meaningful insights into problems which are among the most important and stimulating ones in linguistic research today.

Russian and Slavic grammar : studies, 1931-1981 by Linda R Waugh( )

24 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and German and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roman Jakobson was a major contributor to Slavic and general linguistics and poetics for over half a century, and his worldwide influence continues undiminished. In the articles given here, there is a discussion of both the semantic and the formal aspects of language in the light of each other, since for him they are intrinsically connected"--Jacket

Poesie der Grammatik und Grammatik der Poesie by Roman Jakobson( )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in German and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman Jakobsons Poetry of Grammar and Grammar of Poetry (1981), that monumental work of his later years, together with its later additions, was and is a theoretical challenge both for General and Comparative Literature and for the study of individual literatures. However, the sovereign multilinguality of these linguistic analyses of poetry has not only resulted in their being received world-wide, but has also presented a seemingly insurmountable difficulty, as there is hardly a reader who is able to understand them all, let alone discuss them critically. To remedy this situation no more a
