Abstract:

This collection carries the functionalist Columbia School of linguistics
forward with contributions on linguistic theory, semiotics, phonology,
grammar, lexicon, and anthropology. Columbia School linguistics views
language as a symbolic tool whose structure is shaped both by its
communicative function and by the characteristics of its users, and
considers contextual, pragmatic, physical, and psychological factors in its
analyses. This volume builds upon three previous Columbia School
anthologies and further explores issues raised in them, including
fundamental theoretical and analytical questions. And it raises new issues
that take Columbia School "beyond its origins." The contributions
illustrate both consistency since the school's inception over thirty years
ago and innovation spurred by groundbreaking analysis. The volume will be
of interest to all functional linguists and historians of linguistics.
Languages analyzed include Byelorussian, English, Japanese, 
Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, and Swahili.

"For all linguists, familiar or not with the Columbia School approach to
linguistic analysis, this volume is an invitation to revisit and reconsider
many, perhaps most, fundamental goals and concepts in linguistics which are
taken for granted and/or often ignored by most other approaches. For the
first time an entire volume is devoted exclusively to an inside
conversation among practitioners of the Columbia School. Eavesdroppers from
other theoretical practices will find much of value in the issues raised,
for the insights offered by both the general theoretical discussions and
internal debates within this school, on one hand, and the particular
analyses proposed for a variety of languages." Benji Wald, Research
Scientist, formerly Professor of Linguistics at UCLA, National Center for
Bilingual Research, Speech Systems Inc.
