Keynote lectures from each of the 19 meetings of the International Congress of Linguists between 1928 and 2008 have been selected to illustrate the course of the gatherings, the organization, and the profession over that time. Among the authors are some pillars of modern linguistics such as Otto Jespersen, Noam Chomsky, and Roman Jakobson. The topics include relative frequency and dynamic equilibrium in phonology and morphology (1948), the logical basis of linguistic theory (1962), the use of the present to explain the past (1972), Wilhelm von Humboldt's notion of linguistic creativity (1987), and aspects of the neural representation of spoken language (2008). The page numbers are retained from the proceedings of specific conferences. There is no index. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
