- Author: John M. Ellis
In this work, the author explores the impasse and confusion in the theory of language, to develop a new view. Supporting his arguments with criticisms of Chomsky and demonstrations of common misreadings of Saussure and Whorf, Ellis establishes a new general picture of linguistic theory and suggests the major implications of that picture. It makes an important contribution to the understanding of contemporary linguistics.
