Troisième Cours De Linguistique Générale (1910-1911)/Saussure's Third Course of Lectures on General Linguistics (1910-1911) (Language & Communication Library volume 12)

Ferdinand de Saussure, Eisuke Komatsu, Roy Harris


The notes taken via Saussure's scholar Emile Constantin weren't on hand to the editors of the broadcast Cours de linguistique generale (1916), and got here to gentle purely after the second one global struggle. they've got by no means been released of their entirety. The 3rd and final process lectures, of which Constantin saved this very complete checklist, is mostly thought of to symbolize a extra complex model of Saussure's instructing than the sooner . it really is transparent that Constantin's notebooks supply a textual content which differs in a couple of major respects from the Cours released via Saussure's unique editors, and convey ahead principles which don't emerge within the 1916 e-book. They represent precise proof in regards to the ultimate phases of Saussure's puzzling over language. This variation of the notes is followed by way of an advent and a whole English translation of the textual content. there was no try out made by means of Komatsu and Harris, to show the English into readable prose. Constantin's notes, while revised by way of their writer, preserve the infelicities, repetitions, abruptness - sometimes incoherences - that betray the conditions in their starting place. the quantity constitutes a massive landmark within the historical past of recent linguistics and offers crucial documentation for all students and libraries focusing on the subject.
