Language; an introduction by Louis Hjelmslev( Book )

221 editions published between 1963 and 1997 in 9 languages and held by 1,877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Hjelmslev (1899-1965), whose linguistic theories have been influential both in his native Denmark and throughout the world, here describes in larger perspective and in a manner intended for the layman, certain aspects of linguistic science. He begins by distinguishing the functional analysis of a single language from the description of a group of languages, and further distinguishes historical or genetic relations from typological or structural relations. After summarizing 19th- and 20th-century achievement in Indo-European comparative linguistics and surveying the classical Humboldtian typological classification, he proceeds to suggest that a satisfactory typology of languages based on their formal categories is the most important task facing linguists. His thesis is that beneath language usage lies a language structure which determines the identity and constancy of a language; fundamental rules can be found to govern that structure; and the transformation of languages can be conceived and described as a series of linguistic states defined in terms of the dictates of the structure. Included in this edition (which is translated by Francis J. Whitfield) is a new, final chapter which did not appear in the Danish edition. (Amm)
Prolegomena to a theory of language by Louis Hjelmslev( Book )

249 editions published between 1943 and 2006 in 11 languages and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1943 the first edition of the main work of the great Danish linguist Louis Hjelmslev (1899-1965) appeared, and bore the title "Omkring Sprogteoriens Grundlæggelse". The work was translated into English as "Prolegomena to a Theory of Language" This work came to represent a breakthrough in linguistics and formed an entirely new branch of this field. The author begins by ascertaining that language is an inexhaustible wealth of manifold values; language is the tool with which man moulds thought and feeling, mood, aspiring, will and action, the tool with which he influences and is influenced, the last and deepest condition of human society. Although his analysis of the forms of language employs mathematical models, Hjelmslev was also determined not to neglect the human subject who uses language, which led him to an interest in psychology and Psychoanalysis
