Tradition and Innovation in Language and Linguistics

A Coserian Perspective

Series:

Cristinel Munteanu

This volume consists of twelve studies thematically grouped into three parts: (1) Linguistics and Philosophy of Language, (2) Hermeneutics and Text Linguistics, and (3) Lexicology and Phraseology. The phrase «tradition and innovation» characterizes almost all the texts included here, since tradition and innovation are present both at the level of the object (language) and at the level of its research (linguistics). The dominant theoretical perspective is the «Coserian» one, since the author borrowed from Eugenio Coseriu’s linguistic theory a series of essential concepts and distinctions regarding language and culture.

• „nu mai poate avea astăzi decât numai doară o însemnătate anecdotică. Linguistica nu este o ştiinţă naturală, măcar că întrebuinţează o metodă biologică, după cum ea nu este o ştiinţă matematică, deşi recurge adesea la formule algebrice, cu plus, cu ecuaţiunea, cu proporţiunea etc., ba nu se sperie nici chiar de semnul √.” (ibid.: 23–24).
