Seite 3 - Our schools are conducted by persons who, from professors of education down to teachers in the classroom, know nothing of the results of linguistic science, not even the relation of writing to speech or of standard language to dialect. In short, they do not know what language is, and yet must teach it, and in consequence waste years of every child's life and reach a poor result.
Seite 153 - The vocal features common to same or partly same utterances are forms; the corresponding stimulus-reaction features are meanings. Thus a form is a recurrent vocal feature which has meaning, and a meaning is a recurrent stimulus- reaction feature which corresponds to a form.
Seite 152 - Psychology, in particular, gives us this series: to certain stimuli (A) a person reacts by speaking; his speech (B) in turn stimulates his hearers to certain reactions (C). By a social habit which every person acquires in infancy from his elders, ABC are closely correlated. Within this correlation, the stimuli (A) which cause an act of speech and the reactions (C) which result from it, are very closely linked, because every person acts indifferently as speaker or as hearer. We are free, therefore,...

Seite 39 - ... of studying the phonetic elements of speech are, of course, of considerable value, but they have sometimes the undesirable effect of obscuring the essential facts of speech-sound psychology. Too often an undue importance is attached to minute sound discriminations as such; and too often phoneticians do not realize that it is not enough to know that a certain sound occurs in a language, but that one must ascertain if the sound is a typical form or one of the points in its sound pattern, or is...
Seite 154 - Assumption SI. A phrase may contain a bound form which is not part of a word.,. For example, the possessive [z] in . the man I saw yesterday's daughter. ? Def. Such a bound form is a phraseformative. This assumption disturbs the definition of phrase above given. Strictly speaking, our assumptions and definitions would demand that we take the-man-I saw-yesterday's daughter as two words. Convenience of analysis makes an assumption like the present one preferable for English. A similar assumption might...
Seite 20 - ... of Latin and Greek. In The Value of the Classics (Princeton, 1917), edited by Professor Andrew F. West, numerous testimonials as to the helpfulness of the classics in mastering other subjects are given by men in almost all fields of human endeavor. In his Language and Philology (Boston, 1923) , Dr. Roland G. Kent, Professor of Comparative Philology in the University of Pennsylvania, has strikingly shown the tremendous debt of English to the classical languages, especially to Latin. In his address...
