Language in relation to a unified theory of the structure of human behavior by Kenneth L Pike( Book )

100 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ten years full of linguistic development have passed since the first part (1954, Chapters 1-7) of the Preliminary Edition appeared, setting up the basic form of tagmemic theory, and nine since the phonological data were published (1955, Chapters 8-9). In the United States, transformational attention to generative grammar, and in Britain a development of prosodic views into wider categorical concepts have changed the context into which any book now fits. The basic difference between the first and second editions of this book represents an attempt to show how tagmemic theory relates to these and other recent views. The original biliographical sections (retained here for historical orientation) seem to read as if coming out of another age, so fast have battle grounds shifted. I have added to these sections, however, several hundreds of references to the newer materials of the decade. Dr. Ruth Brend has been responsible for trying to catch my inaccuracies in these and the earlier references. The attention which tagmemic theory earlier directed to the nature of units-in-general, however, seems even more needed now than in 1954. The explicit conventional phoneme has in many areas disappeared from view; the morpheme--though few sense it yet--is similarly threatened; grammatical units such as 'subject' are politely and helpfully introduced as labels--only to be brusquely bowed out as theory. The tagmemic theory of this book, on the contrary, has tried to specify characteristics of units (contrast, variation, distribution--of feature mode, manifestation mode, distribution mode) as related to a three-way hierarchical relationship (lexicon, phonology, grammar). Insistence on three hierarchies which are partially independent while also partially interlocking continues to be necessary in the present climate of opinion, as over against a two-hierarchy arrangement (of phonology versus lexico-grammar) or as a corrective to an attempt to generate all phenomena as a monistic system. Here, again, the contribution of the book is as much needed as in 1954. In addition, our theoretical emphasis upon the integration of linguistic structure into a view which accommodates without jar the larger structures of humans-while-behaving-nonverbally (with the relation of language-behavior-in-context to the form-meaning composites of language), and the structures of people in societal groups, continues to be needed. The work of this book will not have been finished until some such over-view stimulates more fruit in an extensive, integrated approach (in descriptive fact, as it does here in tentative conceptual framework) to all varieties of human mental and physical behavior, organization, and production"--Preface.

"This book will introduce linguistics and tagmemics to undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars in linguistics, anthropology, and other social sciences.

Tagmemic and matrix linguistics applied to selected African languages by Kenneth L Pike( Book )

22 editions published between 1966 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application of tagmemic and matrix techniques to some problems in african descriptive linguistics, and the illustration of this application with data sources (restated in tagmemic terms) were presented. (Tagmemic and matrix techniques refer, respectively, to the study of (1) one-word or multiword grammar units and the functions of these units within sentence construction and (2) language elements within sentence structures by using tabular relationships.) Project studies centered on 18 niger-congo west african languages, covering the subjects of clauses, clause clusters in sentences, sentence clusters in paragraphs (narrative and discourse), nouns and noun phrases, verbs, phonology, and pedagogical planning. Papers were included in the report on the mbembe clause system, serial constructions in kasem, independent clauses of degema, grammatical prosodies, nominal and verbal group matrices for kasem, nouns of etung, verb structures in etung, paralinguistics in mbembe, and phonological data of agbo.
