LANGUAGE by Leonard Bloomfield 1961


Language. By Leonard Bloomfield, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1961.


Perhaps the single most influential work of general linguistics published in this century, Leonard Bloomfield’s Language is both a masterpiece of textbook writing and a classic of scholarship. Intended as an introduction to the field of linguistics, it revolutionized the field when it appeared in 1933 and became the major text of the American descriptivist school.


Leonard Bloomfield (1887-1949) was professor of linguistics at the University of Chicago and Yale University.
