A Leonard Bloomfield Anthology

Edited and with an Introduction by Charles F. Hockett
In the centenary year of Leonard Bloomfield’s birth, this abridgment makes available a representative selection of the writings of this central figure in the history of linguistics.

"Hockett has achieved his purpose—to reveal Bloomfield’s way of working, the general principles that guided his work, and last, but by no means least, to indicate how Bloomfield’s interests and attitudes changed with the passing years."—Harry Hoijer, Language
