Parus en 1943 dans les Annales de l'université de Copenhague, les Prolégomènes à une théorie du langage représentent un bilan de la théorie générale de Louis Trolle Hjelmslev (1899-1965) concernant le langage, ce qu'il appelle la glossématique. Conçus dans la continuité des attendus saussuriens, avec la collaboration du Cercle linguistique de Copenhague (fondé par Hjelmslev en 1931), ils ambitionnent de fonder de manière immanente une théorie générale du langage qui soit la plus proche possible d'une axiomatique.

About this Item: Gredos, Madrid, 1976. Paperback with flaps. Condition: New. 1. ed.. Investiga Louis Hjelmslev ?todavía no formada la glosemática? las relaciones entre estado (o sistema) lingüístico y cambio lingüístico. ¿Qué es lo esencial en una lengua: constituir un todo organizado, normativo, o sufrir continuas transformaciones históricas para adaptarse a nuevas necesidades? Problema eterno, zanjado casi siempre a favor de la concepción sistemática (salvo en el siglo XIX, cuando la lingüística histórico-comparada no tenía ojos sino para los cambios). Hjelmslev se siente vivir en una época crítica; hasta Saussure había sentado como una antinomia la incompatibilidad absoluta entre lo sincrónico y lo diacrónico. Pero nada arredra al lingüista danés. Tiene que demostrar dos cosas: hasta qué punto es sistemática la naturaleza de la lengua, y si los cambios se deben a causas interiores o exteriores. Frente al habla, la lengua se erige como institución supraindividual, social, con normas o leyes propias. No es el anárquico azar quien la domina, sino la forma, configuradora de materiales lingüísticos y no lingüísticos. En sus tres campos ?gramática, fonética, semántica? las unidades respectivas aparecen dependientes unas de otras, trabadas por relaciones fijas (oposiciones, equivalencias) que les aseguran su puesto y función dentro del conjunto. Pero el verdadero núcleo o «santuario» de la lengua es la gramática, no sólo por su perfecta sistematización, sino por englobar las categorías lingüísticas (comparación, género, número, caso, etc.), cada una con una significación fundamental que desentrañará valientemente nuestro autor. Ejemplos comparativos de muchas lenguas, especialmente las indoeuropeas y fino-ugras, dan base a estas teorías de gramática general. Y así se fundamenta también la tesis principal, es decir, que los cambios lingüísticos más profundos, los que afectan al sistema (no ya a la norma o el uso), brotan del sistema mismo y no de fuera, a causa de ciertas predisposiciones dirigidas hacia un optimum ideal. Entre sistema y cambios hay mutua interdependencia, no la incompatibilidad que decía Saussure. Hjelmslev quiso hacer de la lingüística una ciencia autónoma, libre de arrastres lógicos o psicológicos. Buscó con fe lo puramente lingüístico, aplicando un método que se encarama desde lo palpable a lo más y más abstracto. Porque en la abstracción veía la honda realidad oculta, y en la sistematización el palpitar mismo de la vida. Recojamos unas palabras suyas, casi un autorretrato: «El nervio de la ciencia no es tradición, sino pensamiento independiente». Esa independencia le hizo descubrir un día la felicidad de los planos simétricos y de la coherencia absoluta. Editor: Versión Española de Berta Pallares de R. Arias. New. Biblioteca Románica Hispánica; Estudios y ensayos, 249. 280 pp. 14.5x20.5 cm; 306 gm. Seller Inventory # 2148

About this Item: København, Høst & Søn, 1928. 8vo. Uncut in the original printed wrappers. A bit of minor wear to extremities and a bit of wear to spine. An excellent, very nice and clean copy. 362, (1 - errata) pp. The rare first edition of Hjelmslev's first major book, in which he anticipates many of the views that led to the foundation of the seminal theory of language "Glossematics" which he framed together with H.J. Uldall. This foundational work treats the general laws of the formation of language and is an invaluable source for the understanding of Hjelmslev's linguistic theories. Hjelmslev had studied comparatvive linguistics in Copenhagen, Prague and Paris, when in 1931 he co-founded the "Cercle Linguistique de Copenhague", also known as the "Copenhagen School of Linguistics" with Viggo Brøndal (1887-1942). Hjelmslev's linguistic theories formed the basis of this seminal school, which soon became one of the most important centres of structuralism in the world. The single most important cornerstone of this internationally highly influential school was the new theory on language that Hjelmslev had developed together with Hans-Jørgen Uldall. This theory consisted in the double duality of the linguistic sign and is now known as "Glossematics", a now generally used term, which was coined by the two. "Glossematics" represents an attempt to analyze the contents and the form of language on a coherent basis. Hjelmslev's theories of semiotics became hugely influential, and virtually all of the greatest European thinkers interested in language and theories of language throughout the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s were hugely influenced by Hjemslev, whose theories remain of seminal character to this day.

About this Item: København [Copenhagen], 1943. Lex8vo. Uncut in the original printed wrappers. Spine and part of back wrapper faded, otherwise very nice and clean. 116 pp. The seminal first edition of this breakthrough work in linguistics, which constitutes the basis of linguistic analysis and served as a main inspiration for Derrida's "De la Grammatologie". In 1943 the first edition of the main work of the great Danish linguist Louis Hjelmslev (1899-1965) appeared. The work appeared in the series "Festskrift udgivet af Københavns Universitet i Anledning af Universitetets Aarsfest" and bore the title "Omkring Sprogteoriens Grundlæggelse". The work was translated into English as "Prolegomena to a Theory of Language" and later into French as "Prolegomenes a une theorie du langage ". This work came to represent a breakthrough in linguistics and formed an entirely new branch of this field.Hjelmslev had studied comparatvive linguistics in Copenhagen, Prague and Paris, when in 1931 he co-founded the "Cercle Linguistique de Copenhague", also known as the "Copenhagen School of Linguistics" with Viggo Brøndal (1887-1942). Hjelmslev's linguistic theories formed the basis of this seminal scool, which soon became one of the most important centres of structuralism in the world.

About this Item: København [Copenhagen], Bianco Luno,1943. Lex8vo. Uncut in the original printed wrappers. The first upper right corners a bit bumped. Clean. 116 pp. The seminal first edition of this breakthrough work in linguistics, which constitutes the basis of linguistic analysis and served as a main inspiration for Derrida's "De la Grammatologie". In 1943 the first edition of the main work of the great Danish linguist Louis Hjelmslev (1899-1965) appeared. The work appeared in the series "Festskrift udgivet af Københavns Universitet i Anledning af Universitetets Aarsfest" and bore the title "Omkring Sprogteoriens Grundlæggelse". The work was translated into English as "Prolegomena to a Theory of Language" and later into French as "Prolegomenes a une theorie du langage ". This work came to represent a breakthrough in linguistics and formed an entirely new branch of this field.Hjelmslev had studied comparatvive linguistics in Copenhagen, Prague and Paris, when in 1931 he co-founded the "Cercle Linguistique de Copenhague", also known as the "Copenhagen School of Linguistics" with Viggo Brøndal (1887-1942). Hjelmslev's linguistic theories formed the basis of this seminal scool, which soon became one of the most important centres of structuralism in the world. The single most important cornerstone of this internationally highly influential school was the new theory on language that Hjelmslev had developed together with Hans-Jørgen Uldall. This theory consisted in the double duality of the linguistic sign and is now known as "Glossematics", a now generally used term, which was coined by the two. "Glossematics" represents an attempt to analyze the contents and the form of language on a coherent basis. Hjelmslev's theories of semiotics became hugely influential, and virtually all of the greatest European thinkers interested in language and theories of language throughout the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s were hugely inflenced by Hjemslev, whose theories remain of seminal character to this day.In his main work, "Prolegomena to a Theory of Language", Hjelmslev begins by ascertaining that "- Language - human speech - is an inexhaustible wealth of manifold values.
